William Wegman (born December 2nd, 1943) is an American artist best known for creating series of compositions involving dogs, primarily his own Weimaraners in various costumes and poses. Wegman has been making portraits and videos of his beloved Weimaraner dogs for more than 40 years and released a new career retrospective book in 2017 called, “William Wegman: Being Human ”. In this entirely new volume, renowned photography curator William A. Ewing presents more than 300 images from the artist’s personal archive, unearthing previously unseen gems alongside the iconic images that have made Wegman—along with dressed-up dogs Man Ray, Fay Ray, and others—beloved worldwide. Presented in sixteen thematic chapters, William Wegman: Being Human foregrounds the photographer’s penchant for play and his evergreen ability to create images that are at once funny, striking, and surreal. Audiences of all ages will fall in love—for the first time, or all over again—with Wegman and his friends.
