Arthur "Weegee" Fellig is an extremely simple and stylistic photographer. His work of the "real" New York City encourages many people to lift their idea they had on Manhattan and think about it differently. The dark and unseen aspects to living in a socially destroyed and crime ridden city are made apparent through Fellig's work. I loved the black and white still photos that capture evil endulgences such as the pictures of dead bodies on the ground and blood spatter. I love that he had a dark room in the back of his car so that he could get the printed pictures in the newspaper as soon as possible before any other reporter had the chance.
