FARMINGTON — The University of Maine at Farmington says acclaimed photographer, filmmaker and artist William Wegman will be the main speaker at its commencement next month.

Wegman is best-known for his whimsical photographs of his beloved Weimaraners in various costumes and poses, but he's also created photographs, videos, paintings, drawings and writings throughout his career. He's spent summers for more than three decades in the Rangeley region of western Maine, not far from the university.

The school says Wegman will also be awarded an honorary doctorate degree at the May 18 ceremonies.
