Album of photographs influenced by Man Ray and including a handful of images of Man Ray's former model, Jacqueline Barsotti, who subsequently married the photographer of these images Ivor Goddard. Barsotti was a muse to the surrealist artist and photographer Man Ray in Paris during the 1930s, knew Giacometti and Picasso, danced with Somerset Maugham and inspired one of George Simenon's characters. As her Daily Telegraph obituary put it, she 'passed out of cultural history' when she left Paris to marry. The photographer of these images was her second husband from 1949 and there is an undeniable resonance with Man Ray's style. Here is an image of an African mask, images printed in blue and odd visual distortions. The folio sized album containing 12 images is held by large metal rings through punched holes and includes carefully posed photographs of Barsotti/ Goddard as well as two additional mounted images, one of which has a 'Ryde Camera Club' label on the verso. A tantalising collection.
