The photograph “Black and White” refers to two masks: one black, of African origin, and another represented by the pale face of the model Kiki de Montparnasse. It is an example of artistic photography produced by Man Ray, which draws attention to African art. Used to the puns and games of Dada, the photographer also plays with the image and the title, because the image is "read" as "white and black", but the title is "black and white". The photograph first appeared in Vogue magazine, named Nacre's Face and Ebony Mask. In 1928 it was published in the magazine Variétés, with the current title.
