|"Little Red 1999," by William Wegman|
Artist William Wegman is famous for this photographs of compositions with Weimaraner dogs. Wegman born in Holyoke, Massachusetts in 1943, still has a fascination with humanizing animals and has made a living dressing up dogs. The Weimaraners’ expressionless faces are atop the clothes of a jester, a king, or in this case, Little Red Riding Hood.
Wegman has created several photographs and videos of his dogs which can be seen at various galleries throughout Europe, Asia and the United States.
