Too many mistakes for a single photo!… ;)

Elsa Triolet and Louis Aragon, in “Elsa la rose" -film by Agnès Varda (1965)

Le peintre me prête son génie pour ouvrir des horizons inexprimables, et, dûment préparée, l’attention du lecteur-voyeur y cherche ce que le romancier a voulu faire prévaloir dans l’image, ce qui appuie et élargit le texte.— Elsa Triolet, in ‘La mise en mots’, Éd. Albert Skira (Paris, 1969)

Totally agree with i12bent… This is NOT a Man Ray photo. Rather than a photo booth, ‘La photo mécanique’ was a studio with several addresses in Paris (43 Bld St Martin here, also: 26, rue de Rivoli; 81, Fbg du Temple; 11, Fbg St Martin). The written annotation by André Breton gives the date 1919, consistent with the publication of the review ‘Dada no 3’ (dec. 1918) in Zurich. We can imagine this photo was taken when the review was received in Paris.Besides, Man Ray arrived in Paris on July 22, 1921.photo from André Breton
[ref.: ‘André Breton, la beauté convulsive’, Ed. Centre Pompidou, 1991]

We can read in Denis Demonpion, ‘Arletty' (Flammarion, 1996):Une de leurs joies consiste à aller se faire tirer le portrait à La Photo Mécanique, 43, boulevard Saint-Martin ou 81, faubourg du Temple, dans des décors en trompe l’œil champêtres et romantiques.

Souvenirs of Surrealism Dada:
Annotated in hand by André Breton on back: From L to R - André Breton, René Hilsum [top], Louis Aragon, Paul Eluard [bottom] 1919.
Photo taken for the issue of number 3 of the journal Dada. All 4 gents wear false beards…
The image is often ascribed to Man Ray, but the Andre Breton collection claims “unknown photographer”. It looks like a photo booth snap to me - note that the top bears the imprint La Photo Mecanique…
