Jerry Uelsmann snippet
Today, with the advent of digital cameras and Photoshop, photographers are able to create a work in some way resembling Uelsmann's in less than a day; however, at the time Uelsmann was considered to have almost magical skill with his completely analogue tools.
Jerry Uelsmann
Jerry N. Uelsmann (born 11 June 1934 in Detroit, Michigan) is an American photographer.
Uelsmann is a master printer producing composite photographs with multiple negatives and extensive darkroom work. He uses up to a dozen enlargers at a time to produce his final images. Similar in technique to Rejlander, Uelsmann is a champion of the idea that the final image need not be tied to a single negative, but may be composed of many. Unlike Rejlander, though, he does not seek to create narratives, but rather allegorical surrealist imagery of the unfathomable. Uelsmann is able to subsist on grants and teaching salary, rather than commercial work.
