I was reading about Alex Webb and he mentioned Ray Metzker was a photographer who inspired him. Seems like a nice challenge idea because he captured both cityscapes and landscapes. His approach was to present the synthesis of complexity over simplicity. Either minimal or standard editing would work.

Google "Ray Metzker Photographer" and see if this sounds interesting.

Nice to see interest in Metzker's work. Below is a link to some brief audio clips describing different stages of his photography.

yes. if nothing else it would be a great exercise in the challenges and glories of black and white.

Oh to be half as good, certainly.

Reminds me very much of 31.gif nixter's work.

I said that, Lydia, because his black and whites are extraordinary: as if he could conjure a universe with nothing but black ink on white paper.

Oh! I totally agree!

I was just trying to include the Color Shooters in the challenge topic.

I love his use of BW!

It's in the queue. We currently have a Dorothea Lange challenge running, so we'll let this one percolate for a bit :-)

Although Dorothea's style is different I agree we should wait a little while. Looking forward to this challenge! Thanks
