Dreams of Desire 25 (Return to Reason)

La Retour a la Raison-Man Ray 1923
A still from Man Ray first film La Retour a la Raison (The Return To Reason) from 1923, a short experimental Dadaist film that includes Rayographs, night shots of the lights at a fairground, dancing mobiles and this being Man Ray, the stippled torso of a beautiful female, his lover the celebrated Kiki de Montparnasse. As with  most of Man Ray’s art the effect is sublimely erotic and yet subtly disquieting.
