The grave of Man Ray and Juliet


We received this email from Dan Hayon.
It is very sad!

Hello J.J.

I am writing to you because I saw in yesterday’s newsletter a post concerning the sale at Christie’s of a famous photo by Man Ray from the collection of Marion Meyer, estimated between 40,000 and 60,000 euros.

A few days ago, an American friend, a former photography professor and great collector, Jack Wilgus, published a post on his Facebook page concerning the grave of Man Ray and his wife Juliet, which is located in the Montparnasse cemetery and which was vandalized in 2019. He wanted to know if anything had been done since then.

As I live not very far away, and as I (like many others) like to sometimes take photos there, I went to see. What I saw was a real disgrace.
Judge for yourself. This is how the grave of a monument of photography looks today, a single print of which will bring – to whom?… so much money.

I am sending you the photos that I sent to my American friend. Maybe that deserves your reaction.
