A lot of times I’ll go to bed and the next morning I’ll think, ‘You know, a different cloud in that image might look better,’ and I do it. Why? Because art cannot afford compromise. Why would you compromise on this thing that’s coming out of you? So says… the incomparable Jerry Uelsmann
Uelsmann work looks like a precursor for all the fabulous images coming out of people’s minds using photoshop. But Uelsman used a camera and the darkroom. His work has had a huge affect on many artists, myself included.

Great post, I hadn’t seen any of this Work before. Of course I’m not an artist but I’m learning from one of my friends that he knew of this photographer and that his work was done without computer. I was amazed and truly enjoyed these beautiful pictures. Thanks for posting them.
Alex, I adore you and your appreciation. So glad you enjoyed this post. Jerry Uelsmann’s work is almost beyond comparison. All the best to you, Michele
