Lost WEEGEE Photographs found in Kentucky yard sale

An incredibly diverse collection of photographs and letters by Weegee has been discovered at a yard sale in Kentucky. A total of 210 black and white prints along with letters and clothes bundled in an zebra-striped trunk were found by two women in 2003 who took them along to a rare documents dealer leading to the announcement this week that the Indianapolis Museum of Art has acquired new work and correspondence by Weegee.

When I think of collage, I typically think of elaborate, gothic works incorporating samples from a wealth of images but John Stezaker's work while economical with the source material is more profound than one would imagine.
