London's crime scenes: murder in the city | Blake Morrison

PUBLISHED April 19, 2013

Back in the 1930s and 40s, the New York photographer Weegee (Arthur Fellig) specialised in taking shots of crime scenes. Using a police-band shortwave radio, he'd get early reports of stabbings and shootings, and would sometimes arrive ahead of the emergency services. Blood on the sidewalk, bodies under blankets, handcuffed suspects and gawping bystanders ? these were his signature.
