Curtis Moffat

Happy Hallowe'en! And, something spooky for the day, too. Shown here is a photograph of a dragonfly by Curtis Moffat, part of an exhibition of his work at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Moffat "... created dynamic abstract photographs, innovative colour still lives and some of the most glamorous society portraits of the early 20th century. He was also a pivotal figure in Modernist interior design." The photo here shows the influence of his collaboration with Man Ray in Paris in 1923, producing portraits and abstract ‘photograms’, or 'Rayographs’. The exhibition runs until January 13 2008.
