"For Metzner-whose retrospective-in-a-book, Sheila Metzner: From Life, is out now via Rizzoli- reading was living, because it was all she could do. Digging through encyclopedias of faraway countries and thumbing through novels and magazines about uncharted territories allowed her to develop her own idiosyncratic mind and eye, which in turn saw her limitations become opportunities.
It all culminates in Sheila Metzner: From Life, which she calls 'a representation of forty years of taking pictures. The tip of an iceberg that rises above and sits on the bottom of a sea of images.' "
"Sheila Metzner: From Life presents a deeply personal side of famed art and fashion photographer Sheila Metzner. Memoir-like vignettes and family portraits are juxtaposed with her professional editorial and advertising photography. The American photographer's career at Vogue, where she worked with Alexander Liberman, took her around the world on assignments for major fashion brands, while her personal photographs revealed a sensibility toward the human form and love of the natural world. This book covers the entire spectrum, from her nudes and sacred landscapes, fine art photography, and fashion editorials to sneak peaks into her life as a mother of five. With essays by art critic Hunter Drohojowska-Philp and Metzner's oldest child (and regular photographic subject), it is sure to appeal to fashion and photography lovers alike."
