THE PHO­TOG­RA­PHER

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Style -

At the turn of the 20th cen­tury, the Sur­re­al­ist and Dada art move­ments were at the height of glory with artists such as Sal­vador Dalí and Mar­cel Duchamp push­ing the bound­aries of re­al­ity and imag­i­na­tion. But it was Man Ray who cap­tured the essence of the decade on print, with his “cam­era-less pho­tog­ra­phy” that turned sil­ver gelatin pa­pers into works of marvel. Al­ways the dreamer, his pho­tog­ra­phy con­tin­ues to in­spire. Case in point: Christo­pher Kane’s Au­tumn/ Win­ter ’15 col­lec­tion, where in­ter­twin­ing hands and bod­ies re­flect the pho­tog­ra­pher’s fas­ci­na­tion with the hu­man sil­hou­ette.
