Legendary street photographer Weegee was a living contradiction. He covered everything under the sun but preferred to shoot at night. He sought mayhem to feed his social conscience. And he built his legend documenting two cities that couldn't be further apart, physically or aesthetically. We think he'd be amused that his most gruesome work, published in tabloids in the 1930s and '40s, has been elevated to the status of high art. Here, ICP mines its Weegee Archive for those gems of the macabre, the crime photos that originally made his career.
