During the golden age of tabloid photography--from the 1920s to the 1950s--photojournalists created some of the most innovate and enduring images in the history of photography. Photos of crimes and criminals, more than any other subject, captured the public imagination. Here for the first time is a selection of the most outstanding crime photographs from the archive of America's premier tabloid newspaper, the New York "Daily News"
Author William Hannigan demonstrates how these groundbreaking photos helped create the visual style that we now associate with film noir classics from "Double Indemnity" to "Chinatown" and "L.A. Confidential." Narrating the history of tabloid photography, Hannigan tells how hard-hitting pictures helped the "Daily News" win the tabloid wars on the 1920s, earning it the title of "New York's Picture Newspaper." An introduction by Luc Sante, author of "Low Life" and "Evidence," examines the impact of these pictures on their original audience and how differently we see them today.
Capturing the mystery and drama of real-life "news noir," the photographs in this volume are both visually sophisticated and relentlessly revealing of human nature's dark side. An eloquent portrait of a city and an epoch, this book is not to be missed by crime buffs, photography lovers, or students of New York City's past.
