This iconic piece of transport art is one of the most widely recognised and best known in London Transport Museum's collection. The original image used for this transport poster was a photogram, created by laying objects onto photographic paper and exposing them to varying amounts of light. May Ray used and developed this artistic technique to such a degree that newer uses began being referred to as 'rayographs.' As an artist, Man Ray, born Emmanuelle Radnitzky, was influenced by 'Dadaism' and a disillusionment with modern communications technology culture, his work then led him to become a recognised name in the surrealist arts movement in Paris.
