The blurred, out-of-focus perspective employed in this photograph was just one of the photomechanical techniques that Man Ray experimented with in both his photography and film during the 1920s. For Man Ray’s 1928 short L'Étoile de mer, the characters are seen distorted through glass and refracted mirror.
