Ralph Eugene Meatyard – Inspiration from Masters of Photography

by admin Inspirations 4 Comments

Ralph Eugene Meatyard (May 1925 – May 1972) is one of the most famous American photographer. The man behind Dolls and Masks. Meatyard purchased his first camera in 1950 to photograph his son, Michael. He was deeply connected with Zen Philosophy and heavily influenced by Jazz Music. His unbelievable eerie portraits of children walk a line between sentimental and gothic.

“I work in several different groups of pictures which act on and with each other – ranging from several abstracted manners to a form for the surreal. I have been called a preacher – but in reality, I’m more generally philosophical. I have never made an abstracted photograph without content. An educated background of Zen influences all of my photographs.” - Ralph Eugene Meatyard
