Metzker has quietly been making extraordinary photographs for the better part of six decades. Metzker’s photographs strike a unique balance between formal brilliance, optical innovation, and a deep regard for the world. Today, he is recognized as one of the great masters of American photography. His images question the nature of  photographic “reality” through his use of formal inventions such as photomontage, solarisation, multiple exposures and unique perspectives. Approaching 80 years of age, Ray Metzker remains  one of the most dedicated, innovative, and influential American photographers of the last half century.
