Trivia Crack Answer: Man Ray
About Man Ray was a famous Photographer
Man Ray was an American artist and photographer who lived most of his years in France and was active in the early to middle 20th century. Man Ray was a huge contributor to the Surrealist and Dada movements, though only informally. Though he was best known for his photography, Man Ray fancied himself best as a painter. He gained renown as a fashion and portrait photographer, but is also well known to the photography world for his work with photograms. Photograms are photographic images made not with cameras, but by using light sensitive material such as photographic paper, putting objects atop it and thereafter exposing it to light. Man Ray referred to his photograms as ‘rayographs’. Man Ray produced some of his first substantial photographs in 1918. After establishing himself as an artist within New York Dadaists and moving over to work in Paris, France, Man Ray was provided the opportunity to photograph some of the most significant members of the current art world including, James Joyce, Gertrude Stein, Antonin Artaud, Bridget Bate Tichenor, and Jean Cocteau. In 1925, Man Ray was exhibited in the first Surrealist exhibition at the Galerie Pierre in Paris, beside artists such as Max Ernst, Jean Arp, Joan Miro, and Pablo Picasso.
