Jerry Uelsmann - forerunner of photomontage. This guy was doing what we do in photoshop, but working meticulously in the dark room. He broke the rules of photography to develop some beautifully strange and surreal imagery.
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.
