I only wish that this book was illustrated with the photos he describes so vividly. Please: give us that deluxe edition, ICP!!!
But even without them, I'd give this six stars if I could.
The book seriously is lacking because it is not illustrated. - No photos.
If you like Weegee, read it, but don't expect a lot. It's a quick read.
However Ed Ward’s forward and epilogues should be taken out. Ward’s strange interpretations, opinions, and incorrect statements show he clearly doesn’t get it. (Maybe not deep enough, intellectually?) Weegee was a genius. He looked at himself through the same lens he took his photos... ten feet back with a flash.
Weegee was smart enough to understand he was a cultural phenomenon, so were many others including the leaders of major art museums, world renown critics and fans. Wards isn’t, and maybe that’s what makes him bitter? Idk. It’s weird.
Mr. Ward, if you don’t understand Arthur Fellig’s massive impact, his instinctual intelligence, and how to draw direct connections to the modern world and you still publish stuff about him, you’re too full of ego for me to engage in conversation.
