On September 9th, in three different years, 1940, 1941 and 1943, Weegee had photos published in PM. Three posts will present these photos and stories… Three for 09/09, Part 2: “Due to Increase in Murders The Photo League Presents 2nd Edition “Murder is My Business” by Weegee”.
PM’s Weegee Exhibits More of His Police_News Photos
Our Police Headquarters photographer, Weegee, got his name in all the camera magazines last month when the Photo League put on a show of his news pictures. Yesterday, prompted by gallery-visitor response to the first, the League opened a second edition of the exhibit in its clubroom at 31 E. 21st St. The new show, a complete change of pictures from the first, will run through Sept. 27 – 1 to 10 p.m. weekdays, 2 to 6 on Saturdays, no admission charge. Above, in a photo by one of the league members, Weegee puts finishing touches to the display. Typical comments in the visitors’ book: “Great pictures”… “Terrific”… “Could do better with a Brownie”… “Have gone away for the weekend to recuperate.”
