    Dorothea Tanning and Juliet Man Ray, Sedona, Arizona, 1940s
    Gelatin silver print, printed later

    This shot of Ray's wife Juliet, and Tanning, renowned artist and family friend, was taken at the Tanning/Ernst property on Brewer Road in Sedona, Arizona. Out in the fresh snow, the pair hold hands while sitting on a car. Man Ray loved this particular car, using it often in his work. Describing his purchase of it, Ray said, "I decided to get a car. It should be a new one. I did some window shopping. Then I saw my car, discreetly advertised. It was a low, closed body, four-seater, completely streamlined without any excess chrome trimmings, the finish, metallic blue, the interior blue, my favorite color. I could see myself in it with my bright blue tweed jacket livening up the color."
