Raised in Massachusetts, William Wegman is an American painter and photographer who currently resides in New York and Maine. Wegman received a B.F.A. in painting from the Massachusetts College of Art in 1965 and an M.F.A. in painting from the University of Illinois, Champagne-Urbana in 1967. Upon completion of his studies, Wegman took on teaching positions at the University of Wisconsin and later at California State University, Long Beach.
It was while he was in Long Beach that Wegman got his dog, Man Ray, with whom he began a long and fruitful collaboration. Man Ray, known in the art world and beyond for his endearing deadpan presence, became a central figure in Wegman's photographs and videotapes.
