He's a cool guy.  Miss him now.  I had him as a professor for two years at the Philadelphia College Of Art.  Incredible master of black and white.

I first saw Metzker's work around the same time as Fan Ho's, maybe even via the same source. I'd forgotten about him. Love his eye for geometry as well as contrast.

He "gets" the point that photography is a graphic medium.

Graphically beautiful, indeed. Which means less dynamic range. How about that. Almost a sin today!

Not if you grew up with graded printing papers. Then, it's a tool, an option that only we magicians know anything about!

He was a student of Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind.  I see a lot of Callahan's influence in Metzker's work but he found his own unique way.
