William Wegman has gained international recognition for his works in photography, painting, drawing, and video. Since the 1970s, he has created photographic compositions involving dogs, primarily his own Weimaraners, in various costumes and poses.

Untitled from the Kitchen Table Series, 1990/2010
Silver gelatin print, 9 7/8 x 9 3/4″
Edition of 100, signed by the artist

The seminal Kitchen Table Series by Carrie Mae Weems is widely recognized as a masterpiece of performance and story-telling within the photographic image. In this series, Weems uses a subtle vocabulary of props, gesture, and gaze to frame complex questions about identity, gender construction, representation, parenthood, and the nature of human relationships. Weems describes her intention of Kitchen Table Series as a personal view on the world around her, “I endeavored to intertwine themes as I have found them in–racial, sexual, and cultural identity and history–and presented them with overtones of humor and sadness, loss and redemption.” The nonlinear narrative and issues presented in Weems’ Kitchen Table Series remain as topical and thought-provoking today as when the images were first created in the early 1990s. Rendered in exquisite black-and-white, this silver gelatin print is hand-printed by Griffin Editions in New York City.

“This black and white photo comes from Weems’ “Kitchen Table Series” which portrayed Weems in various domestic scenes in which the artist performs various stories, creating a narrative about relationships, family, race, sex and society. The work is evocative, mysterious and dramatic. What more can one hope for in the art we live with?”
— Jim Hedges, The Huffington Post
