Weegee's World

St. Paul in the 1950s/60s and New York street life in the 1940s & 50s.
Painted on recycled wood which adds texture and irregularity to the faces.

Portraits inspired by photos from the book Strange Days Dangerous Nights by Larry Millet and Weegee's gritty Speed Graphic shots of clubs and bars.
