Item description for Man Ray by Cecilia Casorati...

The publication of this volume coincides with the 25th anniversary of the death of Man Ray, one of the most interesting and eclectic avant-garde artists of the 20th-century, who made his name as one of the leading figures of American dadaism. He chose photography as his primary means of expression, utilizing it as an instrument capable of disconcerting the gaze in simple ways. The portraits and fashion photographs collected here demonstrate Man Ray's originality in revealing images of the body, and his constant search for beautiful forms that were also the intelligent expression of art's capacity to stimulate thought. Never frivolous or banal, Man Ray's photographs provoke delight, disturbance, disorientation, and, most of all, reflection. As Andre Breton, Man Ray's companion in the surrealist adventure, declared: "The portrait of a beloved should not only be an image to smile at, but an oracle to interrogate."
