i woke up in the middle of the night, struck with a searing memory of the image you're talking about
i know exactly the one. i know for certain that it's on my computer back home, and also that i have it attributed to man ray. i'm not certain if it's really his, though, as it doesn't completely fit his aesthetic (though his drawings are often incongruous with his photography) and i'm having trouble finding it due to not having a piece name to work off of.
i have no recollection of an image like that, which is a bit perturbing. i only started cataloguing and curating pictures i'm fond of maybe 3 years ago, so anything before that has either become the void or exists on my desktop back home. i would delve into the latter, but, you know, geographical limitations and all.
when i'm home from tokyo in 7 months i'll dig for it, and if something comes to me before then i'll let you know. i'm really mystified as to how this particular avatar could escape me, i feel like i remember most of my past ones. i will be plumbing some mental depths for this one.
i am drawing a total blank. was it drawn with a similar aesthetic to [IMG]
i feel like i had a lot of avatars by him from around that time period (and through sheer serendipity his site came back up like two weeks ago after a hiatus of many years). now you've got these old bones curious
