New York's International Center of Photography Celebrates Weegee

History buffs and photography fans alike will want to head to New York City's International Center for Photography this year for a special exhibit celebrating the work of Arthur Fellig, more famously known by his pseudonym, Weegee.

The exhibit, entitled "Murder is my Business," focuses on the dramatic (and frequently lurid) photos that made Fellig famous in the 1930s and 40s. He was frequently able to reach crime scenes before the police arrived, and snapped authentic pictures of the city's underbelly. (His ability to beat the police to the scene earned him his nickname, as people compared him to a Ouija board.) His pictures captured a unique time in the city's history, and played a significant role in the developing art of photojournalism.

The exhibit will run from January 20 to September 2, and will include environmental recreations of Weegee's apartment and exhibitions.

Visit www.icp.org for more information. The International Center for Photography is located at 43rd Street and 6th Avenue in New York City.
