More Man Ray






Man Ray was born, Emmanuel Radnitzky (August 27, 1890–November 18, 1976) in South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  He spent most of his career in Paris. He quickly became a prominent member of the art colony there. He was friends with many of the avant garde. The top photo is of painter Joan Miro, then photos of Pablo Picasso, a photo of Man Ray's long-time lover, Kiki of  Montparnasse, Salvador Dali and Man Ray, and a  photo by Man Ray of an unidentified man.
(Hemingway introduced Kiki to Man Ray in 1921.)

I'm enjoying the spotlight on Kiki..er, Man Ray this week and like how you're paying attention to not just Hemingway, but his world at that time. Keep up the great posts.
