The Getty Center in Los Angeles has recently opened a fantastic retrospective on the photography of Ray Metzker and his contemporaries.  The collection covers half a century, tracing Metzker’s career and how his work influenced an era of photographers.  Metzker graduated from the Institute of Design in Chicago; it was while studying here that Metzker’s style began to take shape.  Always in black and white, Ray Metzker’s images transcend the banal by morphing it into something beautifully abstract, or at least absurd.

 

We’d like to share some of Ray K. Metzker’s iconic images with you, and hope that anyone in the LA area who is reading will take the opportunity to see the exhibit
