NAME: William Wegman
BLOG: A Blog from William Wegman
TYPEPAD MEMBER SINCE: 2011
WHY WE THINK WILLIAM WEGMAN ROCKS: A pioneer video artist, conceptualist, photographer, painter, and writer, William Wegman moves fluidly among various media: from conceptual works to commissioned magazine shots; videos shown in museums to television segments made for Sesame Street and Saturday Night Live; artists' books portraying 19th-century naturalist studies to children's books revealing tongue-in-cheek portraits of town and country life; and from photographic "landscapes" employing his Weimaraner muses to his most recent cycle of landscapes combining found scenic souvenir postcards with drawing, collage, and painting.
His blog's design is clean and classic, and features great anecdotes, photos and artwork, often featuring his famous and well-loved Weimaraners. Woof!
