The name Man Ray springs instantly to adidas soccer cleats mind when considering the most innovative photographers of the 20th Century. His rediscovery of the techniques of Solarisation and Rayography and his inventive use of close cropping resulted in some of the most iconic images ever produced in the medium. But it is often forgotten that for two decades he worked almost exclusively as a fashion photographer. Although dismissive of this work, which he saw primarily as a way to fund other artistic endeavours, his ground-breaking compositions for the likes of Vanity Fair and Harper s Bazaar transformed a previously staid and rigid format into an artform  and produced images that, removed from their original context, have become legendary.

In the early decades of the 20th Century, fashion photography was practised by only a small number of specialists who frequently found it challenging to compete with the illustrators who dominated the fashion press of the era.  Reproducing photographs was still very difficult and expensive at the time, explains Catherine Örmen, co-curator of an exhibition on Ray s fashion photography at the Musée du Luxembourg in adidas swift run women Paris. In addition, illustration could neatly portray a trend, and reproduce details that the technical limitations of printing photographs in magazines made problematic.Ray s entry into this rarefied world came almost by accident. He moved to Paris in 1921 to mingle with the Dada and Surrealist circles there, but the failure of his first solo exhibition created an urgent need adidas white sneakers to make money. The art critic and writer Gabrièle Buffet-Picabia introduced him to the fashion designer Paul Poiret, who was looking for original images that could highlight the human element which illustration lacked.

Ray s artistic connections soon allowed him to become the fashion photographer of choice in the 1920s, with filmmaker and writer Jean Cocteau introducing him to everyone who was anyone. He regularly photographed society figures for Vogue, and in 1924 produced a striking image of US heiress Peggy Guggenheim exuding oriental opulence in a typically decadent Poiret creation. Although his early work was often indistinguishable from other photographers at Vogue, he was already experimenting with enlarging his portraits.  This enlargement creates blurring effects and allows the grain of the photomechanical grid new balance 247 to appear clearly visible, which is typical of Man Ray s photographs, says co-curator Maud Marron-Wojewodzki. His desire for experimentation also led him to produce images such as Noire et Blanche (Black and White), which first appeared in a May 1926 edition of Vogue. The pale, elongated face of his then lover, Kiki de Montparnasse, is juxtaposed with an African ceremonial mask in an image that references Surrealist ideas of the unconscious and the photographic process itself.

This is often particularly evident in his advertising work. Disembodied hands are a regular feature and he constantly uses cropping to remove the image from reality. The most famous example of this is Larmes (Tears), from around 1932. Originally a photograph of the entire, forlorn-looking face of a model with glass tears dotted across her cheeks, Ray cropped the composition to two eyes and a nose, the format in which it would appear as an advert for Cosmècil Mascara in 1935.

None of this comes as a surprise to Hammond, in whose book taking time in nature comes second, after reading. "Walking through nature puts things into perspective and makes us think about how we're a tiny part of the bigger world," she reflects. She interviewed nature writer Richard Mabey, who suffered from depression, and who found sustenance in nature. He told her: "You would gaze at a patch of saltmarsh for 10 minutes and it would be completely different at the end of that time, from what it was before. It was that which most profoundly affected me  to be part of a living system."

We've new balance 801 forgotten all the good things that rest can bring us, in addition to better physical and mental health. "Rest gives us time to re-centre ourselves, something we've lost the ability to do during recent years," says Friend. "The relentless push towards self-optimisation has distracted us from the benefits of relaxation, pleasure and even boredom, states that have proven to make us more productive." Far from being suspicious of dead time, we should be embracing it. "Unfilled moments, moments when you don't have entertainment, or moments when you don't have companionship, [img] balance 801-653kte.jpg[/img] may actually spawn creativity," says emotion historian Susan may actually spawn creativity," says emotion historian Susan J Matt.
