Three Shots of Hemingway by Man Ray





These three photos of Hemingway are from 1923, taken in Paris by Man Ray, whose self-portrait is at the top.
Judging by the tie, shirt, and sweater that Ernest is wearing in the three shots, I think that it can safely be assumed that all of the photos were taken in that one session.
Man Ray's self-portrait is from 1924.

*Spoilers* for those who haven't seen Woody Allen's delightful new film, Midnight in Paris...




...there's a great scene where Man Ray, Salvador Dali, and Luis Buñuel accept without reservations Gil Pender's (Owen Wilson) time travel dilemma.

I agree, a great movie, CK. Paul, these are great pics! I've never seen that one where Hem is sitting. Good job! Just shows me they documented that period more than we know and who knows? Maybe somewhere in someone's attic there are plenty more!
