'For Ray Metzker’s Unknown I took a trip to Philadelphia to see Ray's archive. With support from the estate's director, Victoria Harris, I was able to go through a large number of prints. Numerous pictures, especially from his series of 'night drawings', have never have been published before. In conjunction with the pictures I’ve chosen together with Larry Miller already two years before, the images from the archive created the new book. For all of you knowing my first book AutoMagic with Ray Metzker (a very limited number of copies are still available) – Unknown has the same size 320 by 300 mmm (12 3/5“ by 11 4/5“). Containing 94 mostly full plate images on 124 pages, with this book you’ll get an extensive look on this mostly unknown part of Ray Metzkers broad work. The book comes with an introductory excerpt from Hans Henny Jahnn’s novel Night of Lead.' — Roland Angst, Publisher
