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.
We are born into bodies that are fluid and free...Rhythm, breath, music and movement become tools of seeing and then freeing the habits that hold us back. When we move our bodies then our hearts begin to open, when the body and the heart taste freedom the mind won't be far behind. ~Gabrielle Roth
When discussing truth, we often associate the truth about ourselves, which is often unknown. We gather truth through our senses, such as sight. A man of 70 may feel as young as he did 40 years ago, mentally, but his reflection reminds him of just how old he is. This image gives the impression of someone looking down at their hands, wrinkled and withered, they are reminded of their age and the life they've lead, reminded by the truth, despite how they feel inside.
