In 1934, with the editorial assistance of James Thrall Soby, Man Ray published a major collection of his photographic works. This was accompanied by a number of exhibitions including one at Lund Humphries Gallery, 12 Bedford Square, London.

Man Ray met Ady Fidelin in 1936 – a dancer from Guadeloupe who became the subject of many of his photographs. After the German invasion of France in 1940, Man Ray returned to the United States while Ady remained in France to stay near her family and safeguard many of his artworks.
