  • On Man Ray's Violin D Ingres
    954 words
    Man Ray's Violin D'Ingres is a perfect example of a modernist photograph. Man Ray pushes both how photography is perceived and what is possible within a photograph in this example. Man Ray himself was an American, born as Emmanuel Rudnitsky, but moved to Paris and engaged in very non-American photography. Europe lacked the American ideals about what "strait photography" should be. While American schools of photography believed that an art photograph should only be made with a large negative with...

Sokurov uses photographs as documents to depict the historical background in whic...
