MAN RAY

American, August 27, 1890 November 18, 1976, born Emmanuel Radnitzky
Man Ray was a tireless experimenter with photographic techniques who participated in the Cubist, Dadaist, and Surrealist art movements, Man Ray created a new photographic art which emphasized chance effects and surprising juxtapositions. Unconcerned with "Craft," he employed solarization, grain enlargement, and cameraless prints (photograms) which he called "Rayographs" - made by placing objects directly on photographic paper and exposing them to the light. A painter as well as a photographer, he resided in Paris for the greater part of his career working as a fashion and advertising photographer. Man Ray was, with Moholy-Nagy, the most significant maker of cameraless and surrealist photographs in the 1920s and 1930s.
