Cries tears

I absolutely love this photo by Man Ray, one of the photographers I am a fan of. The big sad weeping eyes looking up to heaven, the beautiful sad expression and the pearl drops make this photo very appealing. It is hard to believe it is not a real girl, it is actually a mannequin. I only found out about that tonight. so creative.

The face in Man Ray's famous photograph "Glass Tears" (1933) belongs not to a real woman but to a fashion mannequin who cries tears of glistening, round glass beads. Man Ray made this photograph in Paris around the time of his breakup with his lover Lee Miller and the woman's false tears may relate to that event in his life. This photograph is a part of the collection of Randi and Bob Fisher and currently on display at the Pier 24 Photography Gallery in San Francisco, California.


This photo really reflects my feelings right now.
