The Bluecoat: Sander/Weegee Selections from the Side Photographic Collection

18 May – 14 July 2013

10.00 – 18.00

In collaboration with Amber/Side, Newcastle, we present classic works by August Sander (1876-1964) and Weegee (1899-1968), two of the 20th century’s greatest photographers. Despite his precise methods, Sander created extraordinarily sensitive portraits, an encyclopaedic and haunting document of 1920s and 30s German society. Prolific newspaper photographer Arthur Fellig, nicknamed Weegee, is known for photographs of 1930s and 40s New York. A stark counterpoint to the American Dream, his work had a formative influence on the nation’s image of itself.
