"A retrospective look at Sheila Metzner's fifteen year career in photography (1976-1991) from her early photographic prints of her children and table top still lifes printed and sometimes handpainted by the artist to her masterful fashion and southwest landscapes printed in the richly colored brilliance of nineteenth century Fresson process. Approximately eighty photographs are selected and reproduced here for a definitive look at this artist's work."--the publisher.

Form and Fashion. Photographs by Sheila Metzner. Text by Ralph Lauren and M. Raven Metzner. Dust jacket with library protector. Quarto. First Edition. Arena Editions, Santa Fe, NM, 2001. 200 pp.
Culled from the past twenty years, and drawing on both her fashion and subtle, erotic nudes, Form and Fashion is a fine expose on Metzner's work. Of particular note are her images printed using the 'Fresson' process--a nineteenth century Fresson family secret--in which up to seven different pigments are used to produce some of the richest and most painterly of color photographs.
