Personal Quote:

I sort of circle around the scene not showing a lot of blood, I take corpses from an angle that makes 'em look comfortable. (from a 1968 interview in the New York Times)

Trivia:

When Fellig was 11, his family moved from Europe to New York City's Lower East Side. His father was a pushcart merchant, and later became a rabbi.
