After Weegee
Essays on Contemporary Jewish American Photographers

Daniel Morris

Cloth $29.95    |    978-0-8156-0987-2    |    2011

"In his latest book, Morris explores the works of 10 Jewish photographers and how their work relates to their Jewish heritage, as well as why and how Jewish photographers have distinguished themselves in their field. Morris begins with Weegee (Arthur Fellig), ‘a chronicler of death and heartbreak,’ and moves on to the photographs of Bruce Davidson, Jim Goldberg, Mel Rosenthal, Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander, Allen Ginsberg, Annie Leibovitz, Tyagan Miller, and Marc Asnin. . . . Morris concludes that photography is one means of ‘witnessing as a form of social responsibility related to the biblical imperative, the injunction to Remember (Zakhor).’ "—Publishers Weekly
