Apollo

Man Ray and Fashion

Musée du Luxembourg, Paris

23 Sep 2020 - 17 Jan 2021

Though Man Ray tried to play down what he considered his ‘professional’ work, his photographs in the 1920s and ’30s for magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, and for the great couturiers of his day, transformed fashion photography. This show presents his images with many of the clothes they capture. Find out more from the Musée du Luxembourg’s website.
