Sheila Metzner

I love new discoveries! The other day while perusing the bookshelves of Goodwill, I happened upon this great coffee table book "Color" by Sheila Metzner. I am a sucker for old books, especially fashion books and gasped with delight when I opened the pages to discover the photographic work of Sheila Metzner. Her work is eery, dreamy and romantic all in one. You have probably seen her work in magazines but what I love about it is that there remains anonymity to it, because her style is so timeless it is very relevant and could easily have been shot by a modern day photographer.
