Visiting New York City is on many a street photographers’ to-do or wish lists. And rightfully so. It’s New York. The reasons for wanting to make a photographic pilgrimage there are abundant. Think of all the famous street photographers that have shot there. Garry Winogrand, Paul Strand, Diane Arbus, Bruce Gilden, Mary Ellen Mark and Elliott Erwitt to name just a few. And there’s up-and-coming, future famous photographers putting out superb work right now. Khalik Allah comes to mind. And these photographers work in a streethunter’s nirvana. The Big Apple is an American city at maximum. A bottomless cup of cultures, characters and scenes. And, needless to say, the city is also a wellspring for the news photographer. In a city of over eight million people, there is news happening all the time. Crime, fires, traffic accidents. And no one photographer in the 1930’s and 40’s could work the streets better than Arthur Fellig, better known as Weegee.
