Heaven knows how he gets them to behave so well in front of a camera, but photographer William Wegman is famous for his prolific photos of furry friends. For many years his work has featured prominently on Seasame Street, creating a generation or three of dog lovers. While Wegman’s Wikipedia page and his website have longer biographies and lists of his many books, his Facebook page succinctly says this about him:
A pioneer video artist, conceptualist, photographer, painter, and writer, William Wegman moves fluidly among various media: from conceptual works to commissioned magazine shots; videos shown in museums to television segments made for Sesame Street and Saturday Night Live; artists’ books portraying 19th-century naturalist studies to children’s books revealing tongue-in-cheek portraits of town and country life; and from photographic “landscapes” employing his weimaraner muses to his most recent cycle of landscapes combining found scenic souvenir postcards with drawing, collage, and painting.
