About US-american photographer Man RAY (= Emmanuel Rudnitzky or Radnitzky; 1890 - 1976)

Man RAY was a photographer, film director, painter and object artist. He is one of the most important artists of Dadaism and Surrealism, but due to the complexity of his work he is generally assigned to Modernism and is considered an important initiator of modern photography and film history up to experimental film. His numerous portrait photographs of contemporary artists document the high phase of cultural life in Paris in the 1920s.
