Jerry Uelsmann

Jerry Uelsmann began creating his surreal, fantastical photographs in the 1960’s using darkroom techniques. So advanced was his vision that the developers of Photoshop actually contacted HIM for help as the program was being created.

Rather like dreams, symbols and archetypes, each person brings their unique sensibilities and associations to these photographs. They are comprised of crisp elements of reality, yet are timeless and open-ended metaphors.

In his portfolio we find a lot of nature-focused subject matter. With only a peripheral glance, one may entirely miss the fact that the laws of time and space as we know them do not exist in this work.

The dynamic tension between real and unreal can unravel some interesting thoughts.
