I can't believe how amazing these portraits are and how ahead of his time Man Ray was.

These photographs feature friends, writers, and artists from Man Ray's circles in Paris and the US.   There is so much great style archived in these photographs, i.e. wide cropped ties with loose suits, long drape-y flapper-style bead necklaces, silk scarves with suits, knee-length pleated skirts, greased back hair, round glasses frames, cupid's bow lips,  exotic print frocks, and thick cake makeup.  They were bound into the book "Man Ray Portraits: Paris Hollywood Paris
