 RAY K. METZKER  Wanderings

Ray K. Metzker, WanderingsLaurence Miller Gallery will feature Ray K. Metzker's Wanderings, a series of black
and white photographs made between 1968 and 2008, in its main exhibition space opening March 14 and running through May 2, 2009.
  Wanderings emerged as pictures that did not fit into any previously categorized body of work. They represent discoveries that were made or visions that were revisited while Metzker was more focused on a different but singular project. Throughout his career, Ray K. Metzker has maintained a rigorous approach to photography, both in his way of seeing and his way of making pictures. Several 'intentional' bodies of work have made him one of the premier photographic artists of our time: early street scenes in urban Chicago; 'composites' of carefully made and constructed film strips; couplets of dual images carefully laid side-by-side, or unique photographic collage abstractions. In these and several other series,  Metzker's intense focus as to method, material, and aesthetic has resulted in compelling bodies of work unified by a consistent vision.
