About This Image

With Man Ray's "PHOTOGRAPH MAN RAY" stamp on verso. Two dates in pencil (1935 and 1936). Provenance: important Swiss collection.

This interesting design of their silhouette against the sea seems random yet somehow ideogram-like. A modernist form from an ordinary subject. How Dadaist!

See: Alex Novak, For the Love of the Image: A Selection of 110 Photographs, p.68, fig.71.
