Jerry Uelsmann. Forty years ago, Jerry Uelsmann was an avant-garde photographer, using multiple negatives in a darkroom to create a single print that juxtaposed images in a strange, surreal way. Manipulating an image was considered heresy by some photography purists back then. Today Uelsmann is the traditionalist, continuing to use multiple enlargers in a darkroom rather than computer programs such as Photoshop for his ravashing works.
In this image it looks like she is missing her lower jaw, which makes the image more disturbing especially with the ways her hands are mutilated and covered in blood. The way she is holding her head looks like she is in agony. The black background represents an endless void. This is a close up shot and the camera is level but her head is tilted to give the feeling of anguish.
