Man Ray, Solarization

Man Ray was an incredibly talented photographer. I suspect that he was involved with the Black Dahlia murder (according to some theories) and that he was probably a sadist and a misogynist, however. Many of his artworks imply this. Here, solarization has the woman’s hair solarized but you’ll notice it also seems to now look a bit like a body part, a pubis, or a scalping.ML/F/1984/91

About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.
