WEEGEE           Weegee Shows How to Photograph a Corpse - Life 1946                                                      

£40.00

Arthur Felig (1899-1968), better known as Weegee, demonsrates to students of the Chicago Institute of Design, the art of photographing a corpse.
 
In his own words; "Now, a stiff ..... they're the nicest kind of subject. They don't try to coverup .... I always try to make 'em look nice and comfortable."

Weegee uses a dummy to help illustrate his technique. He even resorts to playing dead himself, for the benefit of the student photographers.
