Exhibit: Weegee - Naked Hollywood

Weegee Exhibition at MOCA Grand Avenue from 11/13/11 - 2/27/12!


The tabloid photographer, known as Weegee, moved from New York to Los Angeles in 1947. In doing so he abandoned the crime scenes for which he was famous and started to train his camera in shooting Hollywood stars, strippers, costume shops and naked mannequins. These shots were sometimes distorted by trick lenses and multiple exposures. Naked Hollywood is an exhibition dedicated to the work Weegee produced in Southern California. Alongside these photographs, many of which have never been seen before, his work as an author, filmmaker and photo-essayist is also on display.
