Not at all well known, he barely has a page in Wikipedia, Ray Metzker has created some wonderful photographs of the city and, I believe, his work deserves more attention and recognition. I have always been impressed by his use of stark black shadows and bright white light.
“Unnecessary detail is the death of a lot of photographs. The viewer can see and get involved with every pebble,
but the experience is only inventory-taking. No work is left for the imagination.” Ray Metzker
