Professional Photographer, Rowan Metzner, a native of New Orleans, earned a BFA in Photography from Rhode Island School of Design in 2007. While there, Metzner worked with traditional 35mm black and white film, concentrating on abstract portraits of the body reclaiming the human form and its beauty.


Metzner’s current work focuses on revealing its beauties in a new way. Be it fashion or portraiture, her use of line, attention to geometry and shape reveals a compelling narrative. Having grown up around theater and dance, and as an amateur aerialist herself, she understands the body and it's movement in a unique way. This thoughtful attention can be seen throughout her photography.

Her latest book, Erotic Masters, has received praise and attention from media sources including Art Daily, Find Your Pleasure and Art Net. Metzner's photography is housed in both public and private collections, including the Aaron Siskind Center at the RISD Museum and the permanent collections of the American History Museum at the Smithsonian and the Louisiana State Museum. Her work has been shown in galleries in California, New York, Montana, Texas, Louisiana, Rhode Island, Rome, London, and Amsterdam. She is based in Los Angeles.
