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.
