About Sheila Metzner

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. Her fine art photographs are in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, The International Center of Photography, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, The Chrysler Museum, The Art Institute of Chicago, The J. Paul Getty Museum, The Brooklyn Museum, as well as private collections worldwide. She has published four monographs: Objects of Desire (which won the American Society of Magazine Photographers Ansel Adams Award for Book Photography), Sheila’s Metzner’s Color, Inherit the Earth, and Form and Fashion. Metzner’s work has appeared extensively in VOGUE, Vanity Fair, and Rolling Stone magazines, and in advertising campaigns for Valentino, Ralph Lauren, Chloe, Fendi, Victoria’s Secret, and Revlon. Metzner also produced and directed her own short film on the artist Man Ray. Many of Metzner’s photographs are printed in the “process de charbon” method by the Fresson family outside of Paris. The Fresson family developed this unique method of charcoal printing in the late 19th century and has continued to print for four generations. Metzner is one of only ten photographers in the world whose work is printed by the Fressons.
