Man Ray was an innovator who employed technical ingenuity and humour to ultimately change the way dress would be depicted. His experimental procedures and surrealist winks of the eye brought art and fashion closer together and still influence fashion photography today. Contemporary fashion designers continue to find inspiration in his work, and this is especially true of Belgian fashion designers, with their predilection for Surrealism.
