“Sheila Metzner is a true grande dame in the world of photography. As the first female photographer to collaborate with Vogue magazine on a regular basis, and the first woman to be promoted to art director of an ad agency back in the 1960s, Metzner has always been ahead of her time. This makes it all the more surprising that her images evoke the beauty and atmosphere of times past, despite her contemporary subject matter. Now, for the first time ever, Metzner’s works will be shown in Germany as a comprehensive solo show – and on top of that, together with the work of her long-time friend, Helmut Newton (along with that of Joel Meyerowitz and Evelyn Hofer). This was more than enough reason to meet with her and chat about her work, her show at the Helmut Newton Foundation, and what’s new?”
