Summary:
Surrealist photography turned the world of photographic perception upside down. Instead of taking the camera as a tool of vision and the photograph as an image of truth, Breton, Man Ray, Dora Maar, Brassai and others utilised the camera as a tool for the imagination and the photograph as a point of departure.
