The Fair: Peace Through Understanding #8


Original Caption:

Arthur 'Weegee' Fellig Behind the Camera Wearing a Mask

New York -- This is Weegee himself...almost. Behind a black mask he borrowed from Zorro, he brandishes a toy pistol and a big cigar, ready to shoot or smoke out anybody who gives him a hard time. Before him is his trusty kaleidoscope-equipped camera. Only Weegee could get away with a "straight" shot that is as zany as any of his kaleidoscope photos, which were made at the Florida Pavilion at the New York World's Fair. (1965)
