Format: Hardcover
There is no doubt that this an important publication, but if only some care had been taken with the editing. It is extremely difficult to associate photos with those parts of the text where they are discussed, as cross-referencing there is none. A blight on an otherwise excellent book, rendering it more coffee table than academic.

Bought this after visiting the Man Ray exhibition and not disappointed. Excellent value for money and a great summary of his work.

This book has a great collection of Ray's best photographs very well reproduced. It is informative to see Ray's own marks on the prints to indicate his cropping ideas. Another reviewer suggested this book is badly edited but I disagree. I recommend this book wholeheartedly to all lovers of creative photography and those seeking artistic inspiration. It makes a good companion to "Man Ray: American Artist" a biography by Neil Baldwin.

This book is a great introduction to the work of Man Ray, containing a selection of Portraits, Self Portraits, Ray-o-graphs, found object photographs and more. While I doubt it is comprehensive, it does give you an insight into the contribution he made to photography and at this price does not break the bank. The book is a large hardcover with dust jacket, and good reproductions of the photos. They are presented well, complementary works on opposite pages, etc. Clearly a lot of thought went into this. There is also brief biography that puts the works in context.

So if you are getting into photography you should give this a look.
