"The history of photography has had very few individuals who have transfigured the art, but for our present era it is hard to name one whose career and prominence can rival that of Jerry Uelsmann."--Roy L. Flukinger "Uelsmann is one of photography's greatest and most generous creative spirits, dazzling us with visions at once completely novel and deeply, universally true."--Keith F. Davis For more than five decades, Jerry Uelsmann has sought to transform photography, de-emphasizing its function as a form of documentation, liberating it as a medium capable of re-imagining the real. Widely known as one of the forefathers of the digitally manipulated image, his work has influenced and inspired a broad range of artists and photographers--even as he maintains his strict adherence to purely analog tools to explore "the alchemy of the darkroom."
Acclaimed as an international master of photomontage, Uelsmann crafts his images using the integration of multiple negatives and processing effects--a fact that members of the digital generation often overlook. Over half a century after he first broke onto the scene, Uelsmann continues to develop his unique, transformational style--one that fascinates and engages artists, students, and general audiences across the world--and to explore ways to merge the subjective and objective in a single image.
"Uelsmann Untitled" features the largest number of Uelsmann images ever collected in a single volume. Among them are some that have never before been published, several beloved favorites, and many rarely seen images. Drawn from his entire career, they show both the evolution of his technique and the solidity of his vision. An accompanying essay by Carol McCusker, curator of photography at the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art, provides historical and biographical context and discusses Uelsmann's formative experiences and his coming of age as a photographer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic collection of images I love the photography of Jerry Uelsmann and this book is an excellent collection of his images. The book's format is a little on the small size for an art book and the Title is on a separate piece (similar to a dusk jacket) which is difficult to keep in pristine collection. This part of the presentation is a little unusual.
