Images of Kiki by Man Ray

The short life of Alice Prin (a.k.a Kiki de Montparnasse) was fully lived. As a model, she posed for painters and photographers and sculptors, including Chaim Soutine, Alexander Calder, Jean Cocteau and her companion for most of the 1920’s, Man Ray. She was also a painter, writer and performer. Paris in the 1920’s; studios and cafes were buzzing with emerging masters. I wonder about it a lot.
