A Rayograph by Man Ray. Although commonly dubbed the photogram today, there’s a pleasant science-fiction flavour to Man Ray‘s original coinage, the Rayograph. It’s basically a photograph created without the use of a camera. Objects are placed directly onto a chemically “sensitized” surface and then exposed to light
