Man Ray Photography

Who is Man Ray?

Man Ray (real name Emannuel Radnitsky), was born in 1890 in the United States Of America, but spent most of his life working in the city of Paris. His photography style was considered surrealistic and fit well with the art styles of the early 1900 such as Dada and Surrealism. He mastered the craft of portrait photography and often drew inspiration from photographing his lovers which he referred to as muses. Some of the more well-known artists like Salvadore Dali, Pablo Picasso, and Gertrude Stein all were the subjects of his artistic endeavors in portrait photography.

Man Ray liked to experiment with photography and other artistic styles like solarization and painting. One of his early photographs - "A portrait of a tearful woman" sold in 2017 for $2 Million dollars. Was a product of his experimental nature, where he added paint to a black and white photograph, to change a woman's face to be colored. His other photograph "Le Violon de I'ngres" has also sold at Christie's auction house for a record 12.4 Million dollars in May of 2022 and currently happens to be the most expensive photograph ever sold in human history.

Man Ray Photography

Influenced by Dada style movement, Man Ray Photography at first glance is equivalent to the artworks of Salvador Dali. To be honest, with the technology we have it is hard to even conceive how his photographs were developed and printed in the early 1920s. Man Ray Photography is very unique in its simplicity and inspires viewers (or photography students) to think outside the box. Especially when it comes to still life photography and abstract photography. His early hard work and dedication make him one of the pioneers to pave the trail for the rest of us.
