POINTS OF INTERVENTION

Each of these internationally acclaimed artists intervene at a different point in the photographic process to produce their enigmatic images.

Jerry Uelsmann’s photographs are as immediately recognizable as they are visually potent. He has become one of the most successful photographic artists of the last thirty years and remains a pioneer within the field. Uelsmann’s work has been exhibited in over 100 solo exhibitions and his photographs are in the permanent collections of many major museums worldwide, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Chicago Art Institute, the International Museum of Photography at the George Eastman House, the National Museum of American Art in Washington, and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, to list a few. Utilizing only traditional darkroom techniques (and up to eight enlargers), Uelsmann manipulates and combines familiar images and landscapes into unfamiliar creations that conjure up notions of surrealism, mysticism and even Jungian archetypes. It has been said of his work, “The visually plausible but philosophically impossible situations presented in Jerry Uelsmann’s photographs contradict the essential information we have come to expect from photographs. By subverting the currency of literal fact, Uelsmann releases us from the constraints of photography’s mimetic function. No longer burdened by representation, we naturally return to our internal, nonlinear faculties of thought and feeling to savor the inexpressible resonance of his… visions.”
