"This was his first monograph, and his friends pulled out all the stops to herald it. It begins with a portrait drawing of Man Ray by Pablo Picasso and consists of 104 photographs divided into five sections. The first section, which is a mixture of general subjects (still lifes, rooms, landscapes, cityscapes, and flowers), is prefaced by a short text entitled ‘The Age of Light,’ Man Ray’s deeply eloquent apology for presenting such ‘autobiographical images’ at a time when ‘the problem of the perpetuation of a race or class and the destruction of its enemies is the all-absorbing motive of civilized society,’ and his defense of these words ‘whose only inspirations are individual human emotion and desire'" (Andrew Roth, 101 Books)
