> DESCRIPTION

Leading curators and critics will gather for a conversation about the crime photography of Weegee (born Arthur Fellig, 1899–1968) and Leonard Freed (1929–2006), whose work captured violence on New York City's streets in the tumultuous decades of the 1930s–1940s and 1970s. The importance of their images within the history of crime photography will be discussed by Gail Buckland, curator and author of Shots in the Dark: True Crime Pictures (Bulfinch, 2001); Paul M. Farber, visual/popular culture critic and Leonard Freed scholar, University of Michigan; and Brian Wallis, International Center of Photography Chief Curator and curator of Weegee: Murder is My Business on view at ICP through September 2, 2012. The Museum of the City of New York's Curator of Prints and Photographs, Sean Corcoran, will moderate. » Reservations Required
