First Post: Distortion

Man Ray: Marchesa Luisa Casati, 1922; Le Violon d'Ingres, 1924

Photography does not have to be a close representation of what you actually saw. It can be what you wish you saw, should have seen, and how you remember what you saw. Man Ray's photographs play with fantasy, puns, and surrealism in the way that one's imagination does. He doesn't talk with his eyes, or his literary mind but with his fantasy.
