Untitled (The Philosopher's Desk)


Jerry Uelsmann

Jerry Uelsmann combines objects and landscapes that we can immediately recognize, but in combinations that we might not have been able to imagine. Decades before the use of computer software in altering photographic images, Uelsmann began carefully layering and splicing together multiple negatives to create cryptic and very realistic images that combine the human and natural worlds.
