    Murder In The City.

    Publishers Weekly and Wilfried Kaute released ‘Murder in the City: New York, 1910-1920’ a book filled with deadly crime scene photographs from the NYPD.

    ‘Murder in the City: New York, 1910-1920’ is a black and white photo-book featuring grisly collection of photos that were discovered during the renovation of the former NYPD headquarters. Author Wilfred Kaute explains that the images were originally intended as objective documentation to set the scene of the crime for case files. The causes of death of the victims range from domestic disputes, gang violence and personal grievances. The photos do not identify victims but are explicit, while still capturing an intimacy of the slain amongst their personal belongings and four walls of their homes. In addition to photos Kaute and Joe Bausch have written essays to contextualize crime-scene photography and compare how newspaper articles of the time sensationalized the crimes. The ‘Murder in the City: New York, 1910-1920’ is now available for purchase though www.publishersweekly.com.
