Ray produced major works in a variety of media but considered himself a painter above all. He was best known for his photography, and he was a renowned fashion and portrait photographer.

Man Ray is also noted for his work with photograms, which he called “rayographs” in reference to himself. He died in Paris in 1976 from a lung infection at the age of 86.
