Uomo, (1988, Fresson print)

Metzner’s enigmatic lovers became the centerpiece of Fendi’s print campaign for the launch of their first men’s perfume, Fendi Uomo. The soft, but brilliant coloring is the result of Metzner’s use of the Fresson process, a technique invented in France in 1900 and only rarely studied by American artists. The photograph was featured in Metzner’s first solo American museum exhibition at the International Center of Photography in 1991.
