Review
What is so interesting about the artist Man Ray is how relevant his multimedia works seem to us today. Man Ray, who was born in Brooklyn, New York, and moved to Paris in 1921, was a photographer, filmmaker, painter, and writer who quickly became one of the most celebrated figures associated with the Surrealist movement. With more than 300 gorgeously reproduced duotones of his photographs, collages, drawings, objects, and a variety of graphic work, this is the quintessential book on the intriguing artist, presenting a unique overview of his entire body of work. Most compelling are his portraits of figures who embody the spirit of the artistic vanguard of their generation: André Breton, Yves Tanguy, Jean Cocteau, Salvador Dalí, and Gertrude Stein, as well as his innovative fashion spreads for Vanity Fair, Vogue, and Harper's Bazaar.
