Shutterbug Friday #12:
The 'Strangelove' of Weegee

In early 1963 Arthur Fellig, better known to time, tide and memory as Weegee, journeyed to Shepperton Studios in Merrie England to document, however briefly, the production of Stanley Kubrick's mirth-encrusted exploration of human dread, 'Dr. Strangelove.' In the process, the photographer not only captured more than one glimpse of moments that would not make it into the film's final cut, but -- Kubrick having been severely influenced by his images of liquor store robbery aftermaths, body dumps, tranny rousts, garden variety homicides, and all manner of life on the margins of American society -- confronted some measure of all that he had wrought in his time.
