#O2SPhoto #O2SPhotoStudy  Extension : Photographer : Ray K. Metzker was born in 1931 in Milwaukee and has quietly been making extraordinary photographs for the better part of six decades. He studied art at Beloit College, Wisconsin. After two years in the army ending in 1956, he enrolled at the Institute of Design in the master's program in Chicago. He received his degree in 1959 with a thesis consisting of Chicago's downtown. Today, he is recognized as one of the great masters of American photography. Early in his career, his work was marked by unusual intensity. Composites, multiple-exposure, superimposition of negatives, juxtapositions of two images, solarization and other formal means were part and parcel of his vocabulary.  He was committed to discovering the potential of black and white photography during the shooting and the printing, and has shown consummate skill in each stage of the photographic process pursuing a unique and continually evolving mastery of light, shadow and line transform the ordinary in the realm of pure visual delight. Metzker has taught at various colleges including the Philadelphia College of Art and the University of New Mexico. Among his many awards are two Guggenheim fellowships in 1966 and 1979 and two National Endowment for the Arts fellowships in 1974 and 1988. Numerous books have been published on his work and he has exhibited continuously from the beginning. His photographs are in every major institution. Metzker now lives in Philadelphia. This is my take on it :-)
