"Voyage of Discovery: The Landscape Photograhs of Ray K. Metzker"
2003-11-27 until 2004-02-29
Cleveland Museum of Art
Cleveland, OH, USA

This exhibition of 107 images taken between 1985 and 1998 is the first major survey of the landscape photographs of Ray K. Metzker (b. 1931), a pioneering image-maker of the past four decades. During a trip to Tuscany in 1985, the artist abruptly switched from photographing the urban subjects most associated with his career to photographing the landscape. He often became interested in subjects that he perceived as metaphors for human situations. Metzker has worked in many locations, including the East Coast of the United States; Door County, Wisconsin; Southern France; Turkey; and since 1994, almost exclusively in Moab, Utah.

The show was beautifully selected by former Cleveland museum director Evan H. Turner, who also wrote for the accompanying catalogue an essay and chronology that investigates the evolution of Metzkerís photography and the influence of historical landscape painters, especially Constable, Turner, Monet, Klimt, and others, on his work.

This exhibition was organized by the Alfred Stieglitz Center of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
