Monday Morning Musings - As seen on the NY Trip - Julie Blackmon

Beautiful weather and great photos!  What's not to love?  I thought it might be a nice time to share one of the group's favorites from the NY Trip on Friday.  Julie Blackmon's most recent photographs were on view at the Robert Mann Gallery.  Blackmon cites Dutch 17th Century painter Jan Steen as one of her major influences.  Her carefully staged images combine just enough order with just enough chaos.  For more images, you can visit her website.

Monday Morning Musings - RIP Ray K. Metzker

Modernist photographer and Philadelphia resident Ray Metzker died last week.  He was 83 years old. Metzker was well known for his high contrast black and white images rich with light and pattern.  He created dizzying and sometimes elusive photographs both in-camera and using multiple negatives in the darkroom.  The New York Times has a complete biography and obituary here.   A few images to enjoy below. . .
