The artist

Man Ray (1890-1976)

Born Emmanuel Radnitsky in Philadelphia in 1890, Man Ray is an American multidisciplinary artist. Attracted by the surrealist movement and Dadaism, Man Ray tried in vain to found an American Dadaist movement with Duchamp before joining Paris and the French Dada movement. Painter, photographer but also director Man Ray defined himself as a "fautographe" (French word game between "photographe" and "faute" (mistake)) . His "fault"? Refusing any label, remaining free and passionate. He is particularly known for the creation of the technique of solarization which creates a kind of aura around the characters. Man Ray died in 1976 in Paris and is buried in the cemetery of Montparnasse, on his grave we can read the inscription "Unconcerned, but not indifferent".
