Man Ray in the Bargain Bin

Just bought a bargain-priced book on Man Ray. It had some images that don't appear in my other Man Ray books, so I felt my $6.98 was well spent.

No photographs in the book appear to have any element of accident in them. They're completely planned and constructed. I guess that you could say they are examples of what you can make up in the laboratory.

I still like them anyway, I guess, though I worry they'll make Elliott Erwitt mildly angry.
