內容簡介

對威瑪犬情有獨鍾的攝影師William Wegman攝影全集
將狗兒神情捕捉最出神入化的藝術大師

William Wegman是世界聞名的美國藝術家,他在繪畫、攝影、影片拍攝等皆有極高的成就,作品也遍佈世界各大博物館及藝廊。但他所有作品中最令人讚賞及聞名的,就是他永遠的謬思─威瑪犬。威瑪犬天生面無表情,但透過他的鏡頭,威瑪犬時而淡定優雅,時而桀驁不馴。書中收錄所有Wegman拍攝關於威瑪犬作品,更獨家收錄從未公開於世的私藏作品。作品中的每一隻威瑪犬都代表不同的角色,例如郊區的家庭主婦、名演員、酒吧歌手、或是穿著毛呢格子背心的雅痞,超過300張影像,感受這位古靈精怪的攝影大師無窮無盡的創意。

All artists have a muse. Movie directors perfect their craft working again and again with the same actor, while choreographers find their inspiration for some of their greatest works when creating for a particular dancer. Sometimes a muse is a silent partner, the object of an artist's intense and obsessive gaze. At other times the relationship is a kind of performance, a deeply collaborative act. For William Wegman, whose muses have been all of these things and more over the years, inspiration arrived in 1970 when his dog, a Weimaraner named Man Ray, appeared in front of his camera.

William Wegman is a world-renowned American artist whose paintings, photographs, videos and drawings have been exhibited in museums and galleries internationally. Today he is perhaps best known for his collaborations with his longstanding muses, an ever-expanding cast of Weimaraners, for whom performing elaborate scenarios or merely posing demurely for their portraits comes as second nature. Curated in close collaboration with distinguished photography author William A. Ewing, William Wegman: Being Human is the most extensive collection of Wegman’s photographic work yet to be published. With over 300 images made over the last four decades, many published here for the first time, Being Human will delight and engage both those who are new to Wegman’s work and those who have admired his art for many years.

The book is organized thematically, presenting a wealth of exceptional work in such a way as to highlight the versatility of Wegman’s ever-inventive mind as he explores what it means to be human. From portraits of characters we so easily recognize – a suburban housewife, a famous actor, a nightclub singer, a golfer dressed in plaid – to imagery that toys with a wide range of visual languages, Wegman quotes freely from fashion photography, Cubism, colour theory, the tradition of the nude and the history of art itself.

With insightful essays by Ewing and Wegman, and an interview that explores the key concepts of the book, Wegman’s approach to his subjects and their life in the studio, Being Human celebrates a creative partnership - a relationship between an artist and his muses - that continues to this day.
