Here’s the fashion presentation of designer David Hart Spring/Summer 2020 New York.
Welcome to New York Fashion Week
Featuring WeeGee at ICP is the world’s leading institution dedicated to photography and visual culture.
Attending at Hudson Yards New York, on Manhattan’s West Side. Built from the ground up, it’s a triumph of culture, commerce and cuisine.
The inspiration was the enigmatic photographer but now David Hart pays homage doing shirts trousers, t-shirts, and jackets inspired on his photographies.
Weegee was the pseudonym of Arthur (Usher) Fellig (June 12, 1899 – December 26, 1968), a photographer and photojournalist, known for his stark black and white street photography.
Weegee worked in Manhattan, New York City’s Lower East Side, as a press photographer during the 1930s and ‘40s, and he developed his signature style by following the city’s emergency services and documenting their activity.
Much of his work depicted unflinchingly realistic scenes of urban life, crime, injury and death. Weegee published photographic books and also worked in cinema, initially making his own short films and later collaborating with film directors such as Jack Donohue and Stanley Kubrick.
The origin name of WeeGee
The origin of Fellig’s pseudonym is uncertain. One of his earliest jobs was in the photo lab of The New York Times, where (in a reference to the tool used to wipe down prints) he was nicknamed “Squeegee Boy”.
He may subsequently have been dubbed “Weegee”–a phonetic rendering of Ouija–because his instant and seemingly prescient arrivals at scenes of crimes or other emergencies seemed as magical as a Ouija board.
