Naked Hollywood: Weegee in Los Angeles by Richard Meyer
Naked Hollywood: Weegee in Los Angeles offers a inside look into Hollywood of the 1940s. Behind closed doors, the tabloid photographer, Weegee, captured all the good stuff of 40s noir, including raunchy strip teases and distorted images of popular icons.
Jeffrey Deitch, the director at the Museum of Contemporary Art, spoke about the launch of the collection of photos. “Weegee leads us by his lens down red carpets and through Skid Row, offering up a unique portrait of mid-century Los Angeles.” [MOCA]
