About the Book
My life as a photographer began in the early sixties. I landed my first job as a medical phtographer almost at the same time that I met the world renowned photographer, Arthur Fellig. Weegee, as he was called, was a lecherous but kindly old man constantly chasing young girls. I became the focus of his desire when I showed interest in his work. While I wanted to learn his photographic technique, he seemed only interested in trying to seduce me. Thus, A cat and mouse game ensued. This continued for several years until he realized that he was not going to succeed. During this time, however, I did learn a great deal from Weegee. We photographed the world trade fair in Queens together and he even allowed me to develop his film.. even after I had ruined a roll by developing it in Dektol (a paper developer). That was many,many years ago! I am now a fine art photographer and considered by many to be the female pioneer of the male nude in photography, a trend setter.
