Though he has been a staple in the French art scene from the expatriate 1920s on, Man Ray was born Emmanuel Radnitsky in Brooklyn. This book traces his American upbringing and his departure for Europe plus his work in painting, sculpture, photography, and filmmaking. Although he wasn't successful in all media, Man Ray nonetheless had his own style and vision. Baldwin's 1988 portrait was the first full-length biography of Man Ray. This edition has a new intro by the author updating the artist's story.
