FLASH The Making of Weegee the Famous

by | Read by Graham Halstead

Biography & Memoir • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

The life and legend of artistic news photographer Arthur Fellig, a.k.a. Weegee, is explored in this biography full of episodic anecdotes. Narrator Graham Halstead's conversational tone gives the impression he's flipping through an album of Weegee's life's work--from crime beat to Hollywood--revealing all the lurid details. He employs some accents and character voices to alert the listener to quotations; though it's hard to know their accuracy they do lend New York City ambiance to a story that spans the first 60 years of the twentieth century. While the text veers into a lot of detailed history on the development of photography and print media in New York City, the charismatic Weegee takes the listener on a thrill ride.
