Description

Roger Parry learned photography from Maurice Tabard by working as his studio assistant in 1928; the following year the men were hired as a team to work at an important commercial photography studio. Their collaboration extended to their personal work; they posed for each other, photographed the same avant-garde dance events, and even exchanged negatives for use in photomontages. This portrait likely took place in a photography studio given the jumble of risers and furniture and dramatic lighting. Beside Parry are two camera tripods, emblems of his profession.
