William Wegman is beloved by the public for his signature weimaraner photographs. He is also an immensely important figure in the contemporary art world as a pioneer video artist, conceptualist, photographer, painter and writer.
(But because space is limited and his weimaraner photographs will absolutely make you smile, that’s all I’m including here.)

And, on a personal note . . . I can’t remember if I fell in love with William Wegman’s work because I had a weimaraner, or if I got a weimaraner because of William Wegman’s work.
