"From within the skull, hair comes into existence. Debris, ribbon, the surplus of brain. Virginal, black hair. These are the threads of my mind — crawling, like the legs of a black widow, tangled in the breeze, hanging from my crown like dark, dead trees. Darkness within me, darkness which leaves me.

Man Ray, born Emmanuel Radnitzky (August 27, 1890 – November 18, 1976), was an American artist who spent most of his career in Paris, France. Perhaps best described simply as a modernist, he was a significant contributor to both the Dada and Surrealist movements, although his ties to each were informal. In 1999, ARTnews magazine named him one of the 25 most influential artists of the 20th century.
