Best known for his photography and videos, particularly of his dogs, Wegman is also an accomplished painter, draftsman, and writer, and an avid outdoorsman. In this unique and very personal volume, the artist and his fellow contributors examine Wegman's relationship to place and his sources of inspiration, including Boy Scout manuals, field guides, and the like. By creatively incorporating these materials, this volume embodies the artist's quirky and nostalgic aesthetic.
