Item description for Man Ray (Midsize) by Manfred Heiting Katherine Ware...

Man Ray (1890-1976) is indisputably one of the most original artists of the 20th century. His revolutionary nude studies, fashion work, and portraits opened a new chapter in the history of photography. Born under the name of Emmanuel Radnitzky in Philadelphia, he began his artistic career in New York. In 1921 he moved to Paris, where he was enthusiastically welcomed into Dadaist and Surrealist circles. Man Ray experimented tirelessly with new photographic techniques, multiple exposure, rayography, and solarization being some of his most famous. Erotic, playful, and sometimes sinister, his compositions show unusual bodies and objects: strange, striking images that transform our perceptions of reality. This collection of famous, lesser known, and unknown works fully illustrates Man Ray's singular visionary power.

Reviews - What do customers think about Man Ray (Midsize)?

Beautiful reproductions, a comprehensive selection, and informative essays.  Jan 3, 2008
[This review pertains to the larger hardcover edition. An edition widely available, but as of yet unlisted on this site]

There are many many Man Ray collections available now and choosing the best collection is fairly difficult unless you can preview each of them. I've seen many, but this is the first collection I felt compelled to purchase for a number of reasons.

First, the quality of the reproductions are uniformly excellent. The book is a nice size for this sort of thing. The photographs are large and the images are detailed. Taschen always does a great job with this sort of thing.

Second, the selections present a nice spectrum of Ray's work. It begins with a generous selection of his figure studies before moving on to some fashion work, a few of his famous "Rayographs", and some portraits. If you have a particular area of interest, you may prefer a more specific collection. For instance, if you are interested in his portraits of surrealists and dadaists, there are collections of those. Similarly, if you're a fan of his figure studies, there are plenty of books that cover those images exclusively. What this Taschen edition does the best is represent all of his styles in one easily accessibly volume.

Finally, the text is engaging and informative. Trilingual essays begin each section by framing the work historically as well as aesthetically. Anytime you read a trilingual book, it's always a gamble on readability. Fortunately for all you fellow English speakers, English is the largest and most prominent on the page.

There is also a chronology thrown in for good measure. Little features such as this really set this collection apart from the others. The combination of beautiful, large reproductions, informative text, and a comprehensive collection of images make this a great choice for anyone interested in Man Ray or surrealist art in general.
