"It has never been my object to
record my dreams, just the
determination to realize them."
(Julien Levy exhibition catalog,
April 1945.)
Man Ray, born under the name ‘Emmanuel
Radnitzky’ on August 27 1890, was an American
artist who spent most of his career in Paris, France.
Many people would describe him as a ‘modernist’
and was a fashion and portrait photographer, but
was more renown for his Photograms.
Man Ray met his first wife, the Belgian poet Adon
Lacroix, in 1913 in New York. They married in 1914,
separated in 1919, and were officially divorced in 1937.
In 1929 he began a love affair with the Surrealist
photographer Lee Miller, who later became his
photography assistant. When Man Ray moved to Los
Angeles, USA, in 1940 during the second world war, he
met Juliet Browner, a trained dancer and experienced
artists' model, and married in 1946.
From the time he began attracting attention as an artist
until his death more than sixty years later, Man Ray
allowed little of his early life or family background to be
known to the public, even refusing to acknowledge that
he ever had a name other than Man Ray. His education at
Boys' High School from 1904 to 1908 provided him with a
good knowledge in drafting and other basic art
techniques. At the same time, he educated himself with
frequent visits to the local art museums. After graduation
from high school, he was offered a scholarship to study
architecture but chose to pursue a career as an artist
instead. He stayed at home for the next four years,
working steadily toward being a professional painter,
while earning money as a commercial artist and technical
illustrator. He produced his first significant photographs
in 1918.
Movements:
Dada
Surrealist
Man Ray was a Portrait and Fashion photographer, but
was more widely known for his Photograms. His
Photograms, which he renamed ‘Rayographs’ after
himself, consisted of items being placed on top of
photographic paper, then exposed to light. If an item
wasn't entirely solid, or was semitransparent, then it
would create an unusual effect on the photographic
paper. With pictures like
the image below, he has
also put his hands in the
image, making it look as
if the object is floating
between his hands. Man
Ray, with the help of Lee
Miller, also invented the
photographic technique
of solarization.
“For Man Ray, the camera was
not a machine for making
documents but an instrument
for exploring dreams, desires
and the medium's unconscious
mind.” Quote from the BBC.

Photography: Man ray

  • 1. "It has never been my object to record my dreams, just the determination to realize them." (Julien Levy exhibition catalog, April 1945.) Man Ray, born under the name ‘Emmanuel Radnitzky’ on August 27 1890, was an American artist who spent most of his career in Paris, France. Many people would describe him as a ‘modernist’ and was a fashion and portrait photographer, but was more renown for his Photograms. Man Ray met his first wife, the Belgian poet Adon Lacroix, in 1913 in New York. They married in 1914, separated in 1919, and were officially divorced in 1937. In 1929 he began a love affair with the Surrealist photographer Lee Miller, who later became his photography assistant. When Man Ray moved to Los Angeles, USA, in 1940 during the second world war, he met Juliet Browner, a trained dancer and experienced artists' model, and married in 1946.

From the time he began attracting attention as an artist until his death more than sixty years later, Man Ray allowed little of his early life or family background to be known to the public, even refusing to acknowledge that he ever had a name other than Man Ray. His education at Boys' High School from 1904 to 1908 provided him with a good knowledge in drafting and other basic art techniques. At the same time, he educated himself with frequent visits to the local art museums. After graduation from high school, he was offered a scholarship to study architecture but chose to pursue a career as an artist instead. He stayed at home for the next four years, working steadily toward being a professional painter, while earning money as a commercial artist and technical illustrator. He produced his first significant photographs in 1918. Movements: Dada Surrealist
  • 3. Man Ray was a Portrait and Fashion photographer, but was more widely known for his Photograms. His Photograms, which he renamed ‘Rayographs’ after himself, consisted of items being placed on top of photographic paper, then exposed to light. If an item wasn't entirely solid, or was semitransparent, then it would create an unusual effect on the photographic paper. With pictures like the image below, he has also put his hands in the image, making it look as if the object is floating between his hands. Man Ray, with the help of Lee Miller, also invented the photographic technique of solarization. “For Man Ray, the camera was not a machine for making documents but an instrument for exploring dreams, desires and the medium's unconscious mind.” Quote from the BBC.
