William Wegman

William Wegman is best known for comedic photographs of his Weimaraner dogs. The artist outfits his subjects with costumes and props and poses them in humorous and often quite human positions and situations. Wegman began working with his dog Man Ray, named after the surrealist artist, before creating work with Fan Ray, the successor to his first canine subject; the artist eventually employed Fan Ray's litter as subjects in a number of works in the 1990s.
