The studio on Rue Ferou in Paris was the home that Man Ray shared with his wife Juliet for twenty-five years. The couple lived and worked there from 1951 until the artist's death in 1976. Juliet preserved the studio as homage to her late husband. Studio Man Ray includes a series of photographs taken in the studio in 1983 and 1985 by San Francisco photographer Ira Nowinski, capturing the web of work, art, and life created by Man Ray and preserved by Juliet.

Studio Man Ray Photographs by Ira Nowinski

Man Ray was born Emmanuel Radnitzky in Philadelphia and raised in Brooklyn. In 1911, the Radnitzky family changed their surname to Ray in reaction to the ethnic discrimination and anti-Semitism. In 1921 Man Ray moved to Paris where he made his living as a professional fashion and portrait photographer while radicalizing the use of photography in the context of Dada and Surrealist movements. He became internationally famous as the photographer of Parisian artists between the wars. This exhibition will display San Francisco photographer Ira Nowinski’s documentation of Man Ray’s studio inside and out, preserving the Paris studio on film exactly as it had been during Man Ray’s final days. Several of Man Ray’s three-dimensional works will be on loan from Stephen Wirtz of the Stephen Wirtz Gallery in San Francisco. Partial list of objects in the exhibition
