Man Ray and Lee Miller

I was in San Fransisco this weekend and I saw the Man Ray and Lee Miller exhibit at the Legion of Honor. It was quite provocative and totally accessible... Like I could have been there in Paris, in the 1930s, hanging out topless, smoking cigarettes, and and having my portrait made by Picasso (you know, when he would pop by). I do not care how cleque Paris is for lovers or artists... Lee Miller traveled from New York to Paris to study under Man Ray, they soon became lovers, then collaborators in exploring and developing new processes in photographic surrealisum. If this is not romantic and sultry and seeped in bergemont and vermoth I guess you'll need to go and see the exhibit for yourself...
