  • Description

    Wegman’s early photographs and short videos often have the character of perceptual experiments carried out by a befuddled amateur scientist. In this poker-faced parody of Francis Galton’s method of composite portraiture, he presents every possible photographic doubling of his father, his mother, and himself.
