The artist

«I started off as a painter. By photographing my canvases, I discovered an interest in reproducing. One day, I decided to destroy the original and only keep the reproduction. From then on, I never stopped believing that painting is a dated form of expression, and that photography will replace it when the public is educated visually. I need to experiment in one way or another.» Man Ray, 1890-1976  ... See more See less

About the artwork

Man Ray liked to practise it: he photographed his fantasies. In 1932, he produced Les Larmes. Man Ray photographed an eye close-up. The long eyelashes with mascara indicate to us in no uncertain terms that it is the eye of a woman in tears: the tears are represented by glass pearls. After meeting Lee Miller his assistant and lover in 1929,the artist?s photographs were either explicitly erotic or pornographic. At a time when Sade?s work was rediscovered, Man Ray staged attached women, tortured? sexualized women who were suffering. Beyond a tribute to Sade and a reference to his own fantasies, the surrealist photographer treated the eternal theme of Eros and Thanatos, when desire and a death wish are one.
