NEW YORK, NY.- It is with great sadness that Laurence Miller Gallery announces the death of Ray K. Metzker. Ray passed away early this morning at the age of 83, after a long illness. Ray K. Metzker had quietly been making extraordinary photographs for the better part of six decades. Today, he is recognized as one of the great masters of American photography, a virtuoso who has pursued his chosen medium passionately for fifty years.
I chose this image because it was such a twisted way to think about shadows. The way they cast the shadow to look like a piano is amazing. It looks as if it is able to play. This is a cool way to think about from a different perspective.
