A photograph is worth a hell of a lot more than a thousand words…


ulesmannesqueThis is my attempt at emulating Jerry Uelsmann. Any idiot with even the most rudementary photoshop skills can make a composite photo from digital images, but it takes a bit of skill to do it in the darkroom.

This is my meager attempt.  I have a new found respect for Uelsmann’s craft. It isn’t easy, let me tell you. this is as close as I got, and I’m still not entirely satisfied.

The female figure comes from an 8×10 negative. The open hands (looks like an Allstate insurance commercial) came from a medium format 6×7 negative.
