pen and pencil drawing inspired by the movie
The Naked City
The Naked City portrays the police investigation that follows the murder of a young model. A veteran cop is placed in charge of the case and he sets about, with the help of other beat cops and detectives, finding the girl’s killer.
According to the book Noir Style by Alain Silver and James Ursini, the visual style of The Naked City was inspired by New York photographer
, who published a book of photos of New York life entitled Naked City (1945).
Weegee was born Usher Fellig in Złoczów (now Zolochiv, Ukraine), near Lemberg, Austrian Galicia. His name was changed to Arthur when he emigrated with his family to live in New York in 1909.

Fellig’s nickname was a phonetic rendering of Ouija, due to his frequent, seemingly prescient arrivals at scenes only minutes after crimes, fires or other emergencies were reported to authorities.
