This series pays tribute to the artist Man Ray. Man Ray worked in photography, film, painting, and sculpture. While he’s best known for his experimental portraits of women, he produced more than fifty photographs featuring African, Oceanic, and Latin American art during the 1920s and the 1930s. His work had an important role in changing the West’s understanding of African art. Prior to that time, African objects were considered to be anthropological items, and after Man Ray's exhibitions, they came to be understood as a legitimate form of modern art. This series brings together a model, Mischkah Scott, and tribal artworks that I had collected over the last forty years.
