Perhaps best known for his photography and videos, William Wegman is also an accomplished painter, draftsman, writer and avid outdoorsman. Throughout his work he looks to nature and its treatments in both popular culture and the arts for inspiration.
He may use vintage postcards as the starting point for landscape compositions, borrow from the rhetoric of outdoor recreation in his wordplay or invoke the writings of someone like Henry David Thoreau.
In this unique and very personal volume, Wegman considers his artistic formation and with great sophistication examines his relationship to place, creatively incorporating some of the books and materials that are at the root of his aesthetic.
Complete with the artist's commentary, texts by the exhibition curators and a piece of short fiction by award-winning author Padgett Powell, this book provides a marvelous immersion, in image, written word and design, into what can only be described as Wegman's world.
