Salvador Dali and Man Ray
Paris, France
June 16, 1934

Man Ray (born Emmanuel Radnitzky) (August 27, 1890 – November 18, 1976)
was an American artist who spent most of his career in Paris, France. Described
 as a modernist, he was a significant contributor to both the Dada and Surrealist
movements; although his ties to each were informal. Best known in the art world
 for his avant-garde photography, Ray produced major works in a variety of media
and was a renowned fashion and portrait photographer, even though he considered himself a painter above all. Ray is also noted for his work with photograms, with the artist coining the term "Rayographs" in reference to himself
