|Wegman is best known for his often-humorous photographs
and videos portraying his Weimaraner dogs posed and dressed in a variety
of costumes, subtly commenting on American life and contemporary culture.
Man Ray (1970–82), seen in this work, was Wegman's first Weimaraner
and was named "Man of the Year" by the Village Voice
in 1982, the year of his death.
