Man Ray [Emmanuel Radnitzky] first took the image Les Larmes [Glass Tears] in 1930. This cropped version of a single eye first appeared in a 1934 book of Ray's photographs. Though a later printing, this example was produced before his death in 1976 and is signed in ink by Ray on the reverse and lettered E.A. as an artist proof (est. $1,500-2,500).
In 1956, the photographer Alfred Wertheimer, 26, was barely older than the 21-year-old singer he had been commissioned to photograph, Elvis Presley. Elvis was far from the cultural phenomenon he was to become, and Wertheimer captured an intimacy that would have been impossible a few years later. This photograph of Presley on his motorcycle resonates with many of the leitmotifs that made him a legend (est. $1,500-2,500).
