Ray K. Metzker: AutoMagic features more than 50 photographs by the American photographer Ray K. Metzker that explore automobile design as well as modern transportation's effects on society. For more than five decades, Metzker has photographed cars as they move through, within, and around the urban landscape. In these images, striking highlights delineate the exquisite and sometimes surprising contours of autos; isolated individuals steer cars as if they are extensions of the machinery; hulking parking garages spit out automobiles one by one; and pedestrians emerge from deep shadows cast by skyscrapers, deftly avoiding traffic as well as interaction with others.
