Man Ray’s avant garde photography

Man Ray is famous mostly for his avant-garde photography. Painters will often take an image and use that as a basis for their painting. Man Ray however did what many think was the opposite thing. He turned a famous painting into a photo… An interesting concept. Although he claims to have photographed his visions, it seems many of these visions are more like art pieces.  A good article on him can be found on PBS website.
