Vizslas: Pure Bred Dogs Are Bona-fido

For my senior art thesis I chose to create a series of photos in the style of William Wegman. Some photos that I chose are almost master copies of Wegman’s photos and others were based on his shooting style, lighting creativity, and editing choices. When I was younger I remember being fascinated by a book of Wegman’s photographs and since my dogs are very similar to his in appearance, this project was a creative way to incorporate them into artwork. I chose his photos Artist Contemplating(1994), Slow Guitar(1987), and Acorning(1992), and replicated them the best I could. For my original photographs the connection is more to the comical and whimsical aspect of Wegman’s work.
