Man Ray: Photography




Man Ray’s imagery has started to make me think more about the angles in which I present my photos, layering them into montages and so forth has sprung some fresh ideas also. Considering all angles of the body and how they construct against one another seems to develop a new angle of perception entirely and I’m thinking that I could definitely now look at layering my screenshots.

Ray named much of his photography ‘Rayographs’; The rediscovering of how to make “camera-less” pictures. For Ray, photography often operated in the gap between art and life. It was a means of documenting sculptures that never had an independent life outside the photograph, and it was a means of capturing the activities of his avant-garde friends.
