Weegee Original Silver Gelatin Print: "EYes"

CIRCA 1958 - $20,000.00 APR


Item Description:

This original vintage Silver Gelatin Print by Weegee is among a collection of rare photographs using the eye from an unknown model to create various geometrical designs. Unlike most of his works using these eyes, this piece is a blend of optical art with Weegee’s characteristic distorted style. With recurring patterns, the viewer’s eyes seek to find an optical illusion, but with none forthcoming. There is a small, gentle crease in the top left that overlaps a small amount with the print. There is a medium size crease in the bottom right corner that does not affect the print. There is a slight yellowing on the front, but the print’s coloring appears unaffected.
The paper measures 8" by 10" inches.
The print measures 7" by 8" inches.Arthur Fellig (1899-1968), known better by his pseudonym “Weegee,” was a renowned photojournalist, first known for his photos of gangs, crime scenes, and NYC street life. While taking crime photographs in NYC, Fellig claimed to have psychic powers and took up the name “Weegee,” as a phonetic equivalent of “Ouija.” By sleeping fully clothes with a police radio by his side, Weegee was able to be among the first to arrive at crime scenes. With his camera, typewriter, and darkroom equipment in the trunk of his car, he was able to produce photos nearly instantaneously, earning him a top spot as an investigative photographer. Later, he moved to Hollywood as a consultant and actor, and further established himself as one of the first tabloid photographers through his photography of celebrities, whom he often distorted through prisms. His works still resonates with many and varied audiences and can be found in major contemporary art museums throughout the world.
