When reading the analysis of the images ‘Their First Murder’. Within the  text it is discussed about the power that is held within the image. Wedge used these types of events to call attention  of the way we view images. What stood out in the discussion is the way that Weegee was able to capture multiple emotions within images. In the text, it states that we as viewers are as captivated as the children are within the image, the image calls on the way we look at a forbidden scene as well as capturing tense emotions on a still camera.
