When Text Meets Image

(p.246) 7 Man Ray and Aurélien
The Drowned Muse

Anne-Gaëlle Saliot

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the series of photographs taken by Man Ray to illustrate a later edition of Aurélien in the Œuvres Romanesques Croisées by Aragon and Triolet, and more closely on the relation between the plaiting of words and visual forms, and the concept of collage. It studies the ways in which these photographs revisit the tradition of the illustrated book. It argues that the practice of illustration—as it is performed in the ORC—emerges precisely at the junction of notions of collage and representation.

Keywords:   photography, illustration, collage, representation, Triolet, Aragon, Man Ray
