No one got the joke
Before William Wegman became famous for wryly photographing his dog, a Weimaraner named Man Ray, he'd accumulated an equally wry series of self-portraits. A number of vintage black-and-white prints of Wegman's photographs from the 1970s, all of them paired with text, currently hangs at Marc Selywn Fine Art. In one, called, As a Joke ..., a man wearing a plain white T-shirt sits in a chair while Wegman, also in a white shirt, walks by. The caption reads, "As a joke he put his T-shirt on Backward." In a second image, Wegman is nearly out of the frame, and the man in the chair looks up quizzically: "No one got it," this second caption says. 6222 Wilshire Blvd.; through July 6. (323) 933-9911, marcselwynfineart.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: May 4. Continues through July 6, 2013
