Notes from the Archive: William Wegman is best known for his photographs and films of his beloved Weimaraners, beginning around 1970 with the now famous Man Ray, followed by Fay Ray and her offspring. Here the dogs are arranged in groups of two to five in poses for each letter of the alphabet. Originally imagined to be installed as wallpaper as a charming educational tool. Included in the permanent collection of the Cooper-Hewitt Museum. Wegman's photographs are included in numerous international museum collections and he was honored with a retrospective exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum in 2006. His numerous books are loved by children and adults alike and his films and videos have been shown on Saturday Night Live, Nickelodeon and Sesame Street.
