Jerry Uelsmann and Maggie Taylor on NY Times Lens Blog


Last week photographic duo extraordinaire Jerry Uelsmann and Maggie Taylor were featured in separate articles on the New York Times Lens Blog!

"Jerry Uelsmann's Analog Dreams" 

"Before Photoshop allowed image makers to bend reality to their will with a single keystroke there was Jerry Uelsmann. He created surreal images the hard way -- not with digital shortcuts, but working in a darkroom with seven enlargers and multiple negatives."                       ?James Estrin


Untitled (Ocean in Frame), 2003


"In Her Garden of Digital Delights"

"I use pretty minimal and simple features. I try not to get overwhelmed by the technical aspects of it. But as new features have allowed for higher quality images, that's changed my work,. Things have become more intricate and layered and I'm braver about having many more layers in the images than I used to be. When I started out I didn't think that I could do all of my work in Photoshop. I never really saw it as the ultimate answer to everything. But I now realize that there's no other way I could do this kind of work. I couldn't imagine myself using a camera and film anymore." ?Maggie Taylor

Both Uelsmann and Taylor are featured in our currently running Deck the Walls holiday exhibition (running through January 14). For more information about purchasing one of these alluring works, contact us here at the John Cleary Gallery!
