Man Ray - Photographer / Painter / Mixed Media Artist
Quote:
Man Ray
b. 1890 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania,
d. 1976 Paris, France

Born in Philadelphia, Emmanuel Radnitsky grew up in New Jersey and became a commercial artist in New York in the 1910s. He began to sign his name Man Ray in 1912, although his family did not change its surname to Ray until the 1920s. He initially taught himself photography in order to reproduce his own works of art, which included paintings and mixed media. In 1921 he moved to Paris and set up a photography studio to support himself. There he began to make photograms, which he called "Rayographs."

Shortly before World War II, Man Ray returned to the United States and settled in Los Angeles from 1940 until 1951. He was disappointed that he was recognized only for his photography in America and not for the filmmaking, painting, sculpture, and other media in which he worked. In 1951 Man Ray returned to Paris, where he concentrated primarily on painting.

Ooh..I love the pictures he took of Lee Miller (actually, I just love Lee Miller) and I've read extensively about their relationship too.

I guess these have already been posted in the Lee Miller thread but I thought I'd boost this thread with them:

I really love his collaborations with Marcel Duchamp, also Ray's surrealist short films from the 1930's are very interesting.
