Weegee : Murder is my business
Fotomuseum Antwerpen (FoMu), 2012
Weegee is one of the most colourful figures in American photography.
The exhibition Weegee: Murder Is My Business focuses on his dramatic black-and-white images of the New York crime scene of the 1930s and 1940s, which set the standard for what has become known as tabloid journalism.
Kummer & Herrman used this tabloid-connection in a powerful typographical approach for their design of the exhibition for Fotomuseum Antwerpen. The exhibition presents over 100 vintage prints, original newspapers, film excerpts and views of the 1941 Photo League exhibition. There are also touch screens with background information on Weegee and the photos on exhibit. The exhibition is on show untill 27th January 2013.
