Man Ray - The 50 Faces of Juliet 1941-1955

A collection of original photos by Man Ray entitled "The 50 Faces of Juliet" is on exhibit at the Lorusso Gallery in Andria. The photos are all of Man Ray's wife, Juliet Browner, and were taken between 1941 and 1955. Also on exhibit are some of his famous Objects d'Affection, which are objects of daily use, removed from their usual context and reinterpreted. The exhibit runs until July 30.
Man Ray was a dadaist and a surrealist, and taking photos of his photos felt like a rather surreal experience itself.
