Praise For William Wegman: Being Human: (Books for Dog Lovers, Dogs Wearing Clothes, Pet Book)

“Culled from over three decades of Wegman’s portraits of his Weimaraners—Man Ray and later Fay Ray and her several generations of offspring—the more than 300 photos collected in this volume vividly illustrate the artist’s witty, humanist approach to his subjects. Divided into 16 themed chapters, the book showcases some of Wegman’s best-known images of the dogs alongside previously unseen gems from his personal archive.” —Publishers Weekly Starred Review
