Man Ray takes photography the wrong way: solarization, rayographies, various and playful experiments, absolutely disconcerting objects, new mathematics of the eye and the image. This is something to please the surrealists. Brilliant jack-of-all-trades, false dilettante, Man Ray is a meticulous professional operator, a methodical agitator in photography, whose innovation rests as much on chance as on reason: “Photography, he will say, is not a question of calculation: it is a question of reaching a goal fixed in advance. »

This book presents the entire work of the photographer. From the Man Ray donation to the photographs of the greatest private or public collections such as the Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles or the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the artist’s work is illuminated and commented on by the texts of the greatest specialists. of his work. (IN FRENCH!)
