Urban American streetscapes, captured in black and white taken over a quarter century show Metzker pushing the technical boundaries of photography into an undefined formal realm well beyond the expected. Metker’s shots transform his subjects into visual patterns and a study in texture and pattterns and are a manifestation of his command of light and shade Whether the photographs capture people waiting to take action, or people already in motion, Metzker’s technique estrange them from the lockstep rhythm of mundane activity, and makes them stand still- just for a moment. The result is a series of photographs that demands a reinterpreptation of the city, its streetlife and its inhabitants.
