    WEEGEE

    Movie theatres are places filled with joy, fear, love, and boredom. Photographer Weegee has captured all these emotions and more by snapping photos of unsuspecting patrons in a 1940’s Manhattan movie house. By using a infrared film and a filtered flashbulb, Weegee was able to capture faces of concentration, slumber, happiness and romance by the glow of the sliver screen.

    Weegee is known for his work of gangland murder scenes and the crowds they attract. To some, this series of theatre shots don’t fall in line with his most famous work. In fact Weegee is using this scene to further explain that the world is not exactly as we perceive it. He has made it his task to look closely at the ways we view the world, and creating a deeper understanding for what we maybe missing around us.
