wegman on his dogs

"They were a way of holding on to him...of saying, 'Don't go. Or if you go, give me this at least.' "
This is William Wegman on the last pictures of his dog Man Ray, with whom he embarked on what's been essentially a group career shared with his dog tribe. In the course of this short piece he talks about his dogs, their partnership, and their ever-more-evident mortality. It's calm, wistful, and sweet. Here you go.
