Joseph Cornell, New York 1933 -by Lee Miller
Many of the photos she took during this time bear the influence of Man Ray in their distinctly surrealist approach. This striking image is of the artist Joseph Cornell. It features the artist in profile, merged into one of his ‘objects’. In 1932 Cornell featured in an exhibition of Surrealism in New York and four years later he was included in the Museum of Modern Art’s exhibition ‘Fantastic Art Dada and Surrealism’.
