Piece of History

Arthur Fellig (Weegee) is a well known (Though I did not know of him until now) photographer and photojournalist during the 20's-60's. His signature photos were his street photographies.
He worked in New York taking pictures for the news paper, featuring crime scenes and various other action photos.
 Though Weegee did not only do action photographies, he also had a photo collection featuring circus people and nudes.
Characteristic for Fellig, is that most of his shoots are during night time, where a dramatic contrast occur when using a flash. I am not sure if this is intentional, though it's something. He also took portraits, here of Marilyn Monroe puckering up.
