Man Ray

Man Ray was an American artist who spent most of his career in Paris, France. Perhaps best described simply as a modernist he was a significant contributor to both the Dada and surrealist movements.

 He was also a renowned fashion and portrait photographers. he is noted for his photograms, which he renamed 'rayograms' after himself.

Really like the swirling pattern, almost gives it a sense of 3D

 His style included capitalising on the stark and unexpected effects of negative imaging, unusual juxtapositions of identifiable objects (such as spoons and pearl necklaces), varying the exposure time given to different objects within a single image, and moving objects as they were exposed. 

Love the way the letters are transparent and you can see a shadow version beneath it
