For almost 25 years, William Wegman has been producing photographs with the 20 x 24" Polaroid camera. This body of work began in 1979, when Wegman - already well known in the art world for his wry video and conceptual photographic work - was invited by Polaroid to try out this unusual camera. When Wegman and his dog, Man Ray, travelled to Boston to use the camera for the first time, a remarkable collaboration was launched. After Man Ray died in 1982, Wegman continued his exploration of the medium with non-canine subjects. In the late 1980s, he began to work with the dog Fay Ray and an expanding universe of her progeny. William Wegman captures his canine subjects in a variety of poses and guises. This volume gathers together a collection of his work and includes a candid essay by the artist exploring his experiences with the large-format camera and his models.
