Well-known and much-exhibited in the United States, Metzker is inexplicably less well-known outside the States. This retrospective survey encompasses the full range of Metzker's brilliant, constantly evolving, formal language.
Although Metzker has photographed in Europe on several occasions, he has never felt the need to travel to particularly exotic climes for inspiration. He finds it readily at hand in the neighbourhoods where he has lived - principally Chicago and Philadelphia - and increasingly in the domain of nature, though the vegetation he depicts in such original form might well be that of a weed-clogged vacant city lot as much as the vast open plains of the American West."
Good - Very Good / Softcover has some general shelf wear consisting of some scuffs and scratches, but no tears. Inside in great condition with the tiniest hint of edge discolouration. There are a few images that show white dotting due to the printing method, a known issue with this book. There are only a handful of images that have these white dots.
