    Thanks for Posting - I was not familiar with his look early on.......

    This portrait is very two dimensional. Maybe it is the strong contrast or the lettering in the background. It looks more like a newspaper print than a photograph.

    His mustache is still in its early stages I suppose.

    The only difference there is between me and a crazy man is that I am not crazy.

    There is another shot available here that I think must have been taken at the same session including both Dalí and Man Ray: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Man_Ray_Salvador_Dali.jpg
