The influence of Surrealism is evident in this provocative exhibition of photographic portrait images that mirror traits of the movement's irrational associations. Some 18 photographs by Man Ray, Ubac, George Platt Lynes, Spring Hurlbut, Volker Seding, Pamela Williams, Angus McBean, Duane Michals, among others, embrace the bizarre, the enigmatic, chance, and humour - aspects that have profoundly contributed to surrealist inspired photographic creativity. Works selected from the permanent collection and loans. Organized by the AGO.
