The Seductions of Photography
Published by Silvana Editoriale.
Edited by Walter Guadagnini, Giangavino Pazzola.
A portraitist and fashion photographer by profession, and an artist by inclination, Man Ray (1890-1976) found the female form to be one of his principal inspirations. Models, muses, companions, students and colleagues such as Berenice Abbott, Lee Miller, Meret Oppenheim, Nusch Éluard, Kiki de Montparnasse, Dora Maar and Juliet represented a universe of relationships as diverse as they were crucial in the evolution of his life and his art. Some of these women were great artists; others were central figures in the cultural history of the era, as revealed in this volume edited by Walter Guadagnini and Giangavino Pazzola, who have created a dialogue among more than 100 masterpieces by the American artist—a true icon of 20th-century photography—and some of the women who played prominent roles in an extraordinary period in the art world.

Man Ray found the surreal in the commonplace, particularly in the female form, and this has made his photography some of the world's most accessible and recognizable: his ubiquitous La Violin d'Ingres creates a cello from a woman's torso with the addition of curliqued vents inked on her sides; his classic image of shining cinematic tears glistening on a powdered cheek has been tucked into mirror frames all over the world. This collection of more than 130 pictures dated between 1920 and 1950 covers not only Ray's work as one of the world's leading avant-garde artists--he was a tireless experimenter who participated in the Cubist, Dadaist and Surrealist art movements--but also his commercial work. It includes fashion photography and advertising images; portraits of many artists, including Marcel Proust, Marcel Duchamp and Andre Breton; and a portfolio of 26 Femmes. Art dealer Giorgio Marconi, who met May Ray in 1966 in Milan, contributes an insightful interview.
