A Collection of Photos Feat. Meret Opphenheimer by Man Ray (1930s)

Meret (or Méret) Elisabeth Oppenheim (1913 – 1985) was a German-born Swiss Surrealist artist and photographer. Oppenheim was a member of the Surrealist movement along with André Breton, Luis Buñuel, Max Ernst, and other writers and visual artists. Besides creating art objects, Oppenheim also famously appeared as a model for photographs by Man Ray, most notably a series of nude shots of her interacting with a printing press.
