The wonderful art of Man Ray

Les Larmes Photo by Man Ray

I saw Man Ray for the first time when I was in university. My photography teacher showed the class many pictures and one really caught my attention: Les Larmes by Man Ray. What is really interesting about the picture is the contrast between something natural, like a face, and something artificial (tears and eyelashes). Also, the composition is very unique; I was not expecting to see a face photographed from this angle. It is an amazing picture.

I was so fascinated that I researched him and discovered more of his amazing works, including the Rayographs. As  a contributor to the Dada and Surrealist movements, Man Ray innovated with peculiar techniques. It’s worth it to check out his website and his life history. I am sure that you will be amazed by his work, like I am.
