Tears (1933), Man Ray.Like a film still from a silent movie, this work reeks of drama: what has happened to cause this woman such distress? Glancing upwards wistfully, her eyelashes are mascara-encrusted, her tears unnaturally spherical. This is not a real woman; it is a mannequin, crying tears of round glass beads. Man Ray’s inspiration for this gelatine silver print may have been his recent breakup with fashion photographer Lee Miller.
