Old Blue Eyes

William Wegman is a painter, photographer, videographer, and author. His work is well known and respected in the art world. Wegman has permanent art collections in three museums in the United States, including the Smithsonian American Art Museum. But of all the work he has done throughout the years, he’s best known for one thing: his dogs. The dogs are Weimaraners—an active breed that likes to run around and play. This is part of what makes Wegman’s photos so unusual. Although his dogs are always looking to run, jump, and play, Wegman somehow gets them to stand perfectly still for zany photos, many of which have become famous. Here, Wegman's dog Flo sits in a sea of blue for a photo. Click through this slide show for more photos.
