    (December 2, 1943- )
    Born in Holyoke, Massachusetts
    Known for photos of his weimaraners, including Man Ray, Fay Ray, Battina and Chip
    Made short films for Sesame Street and Saturday Night Live
    Books featuring his photos include 'Man's Best Friend' (1982), 'Little Red Riding Hood' (1993), 'ABC' (1994), 'William Wegman's Mother Goose' (1996), 'Puppies' (1997), 'William Wegman's Farm Days' (1998), 'William Wegman's Pups' (1999), 'Fay' (1999), 'The Night Before Christmas' (2000), 'William Wegman's Wegmanology' (2001), 'Chip Wants A Dog' (2003), 'Dress Up Batty' (2004) and 'Funney Strange' (2006)
    He said of his earlier conceptual art days, 'I wanted to be smart and superior and know everything, but I just wasn't cut out for it.'
    He has been married three times, divorced twice.
    He named his son 'Atlas.'
    He stopped working with the weimaraners for a year because he felt 'nailed to the dog cross.'
    You dress up your dogs in costumes and you're crazy; he does it and it's art.
    His pictures are clever.
    He began incorporating Man Ray into his work because the dog kept roaming in front of the camera anyway.
    A fire destroyed his Tribeca loft along with his paintings, photographs and negatives (1978).
    He received two Guggenheim fellowships and two NEA grants.
    He was heartbroken over the deaths of Man and Fay.
