Jerry Uelsmann (American, b.b. 1934)
Jerry Uelsmann is a well-known purveyor of the fine arts. He is an American photographer who is best known for bringing the photomontage to popularity in the 20th century. This is simply when different negatives are put together in a dark room to create one image; it is also often called 'multilayered imagery.' He is known for layering images very skillfully, without the use of Photoshop; in fact, he was doing this type of layering decades before Photoshop came along. Uelsmann only uses his own negatives and often has no destination in mind for his composition, simply going with the flow of the photographs.
Uelsmann once taught photography at the University of Florida, and he received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1967. In 1972, he received the National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, and he is a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain as well as a founding member of The Society of Photographic Education.
Today, Uelsmann's works are part of the permanent collections of a number of museums worldwide, such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. His photographs are included in many collections in the U.S.A. as well as in museums in Japan, Sweden, Australia and France. Uelsmann's says his appeal is just “something beyond language that connects one with aesthetic experiences such as music.”
