Ray K Metzker: Light Lines

Regular visitors will be familiar with my complaints about the cost of some photographic books. Especially annoying for me, given that he is one of my favourite photographers, is the cost of Light Lines by Ray K Metzker: currently £324 (!) on Amazon UK.


Well, I recently found a way around this.

The more linguistically capable of you might recognise what this is in the photo.

Yes, it’s the French edition of Light Lines. Identical in every way apart from the language of the essays. The photographs are the same.

It cost just €66 from artbooksonline.eu.

It’s simply a wonderful book. Go get it!

What can I say about Ray Metzker? He was one of the finest photographers, with a singular vision and a fantastic eye. His stark shots of shadows and light are astonishing.
