In the X-Files episode titled Tithonous “a man with a camera follows a woman from an elevator through a corridor to another elevator, where all the people appear to be gray. He gets off on a floor before the woman and runs down the stairs. Lights flicker and the elevator cable snaps. As the man reaches the basement, the cab crashes and its door spills open to reveal the woman’s wrist, covered with blood. The man begins to snap photos.” The fictional photographer is based on Weegee. There are dozens of television shows and movies that use the life of a photographer as the main subject or a sub plot.
