Form & Fashion

Sheila Metzner’s unique photographic style has positioned her as a contemporary master in the worlds of fine art, fashion, portraiture, still life and landscape photography. Born in Brooklyn, in 1939, she attended Pratt Institute, where she majored in Visual Communications, and was then hired by the Doyle Dane Bernbach advertising agency as its first female art director. She took pictures all the while, amassing them slowly over the next thirteen years, while raising five children. One of these photographs was included in a famous and controversial exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art—Mirrors and Windows: American Photography since 1960—and became the dark horse hit of the exhibition. Gallery shows and commercial clients soon followed. Metzner’s fine art photographs are featured in numerous private and museum collections—among others The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The International Center of Photography, the Agfa and Polaroid Collections. She has published four monographs: Objects of Desire, which won the Amerian Society of Magazine Photographers Ansel Adams Award for Book Photography; Sheila Metzner’s Color, Inherit the Earth (landscapes) and Form and Fashion (images culled from twenty years of fine-art and fashion work).
