This is a glimpse backstage into one of the world's great opera houses: San Francisco Opera House. It is also and insider's look at the process of creating what is probably the world's most complicated art form. Behind each superstar on stage is a support staff of hundreds, even thousands of people, most of whom are highly specialized. In following the process, the authors watched productions grow from telephone negotiations through intensive rehearslas into the full-scale extravaganza the audience sees. --from Preface

The studio of Man Ray by Ira Nowinski ( Book )
4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
" This small volume represents the somewhat larger volume of Man Ray's Paris studio. Inside, we shall see some of the images which inhabited the space where so many other images were made. Here, unassuming objects once stood on tables to be rayographed - dissolved into their masks. A leftover head still rests on a shadow, its portrait taken ... taken ... not as something taken away by a burglar in a bag, but as something taken into consideration. -- from the Introduction by William H. Gass Man Ray's widow Juliette died in 1991, and her brothers formed a trust to foster worldwide recognition of this important artist. Following a disastrous flood in the studio in 1992, the art works and many of the personal effects that it had contained were put in storage, eventually to be sold off to pay taxes. Before any of these events took place, however, Ira Nowinksi photographed the studio inside and out, preserving the Paris studio on film exactly as it had been during Man Rays final days. The beautifully composed, richly printed black-and-white photographs allow, in Gass's words, "memories to regain their rights. Layer after layer, print upon print, level above level, art echoing art: I think Man Ray would have loved the idea."--Publisher's website
