Jerry Uelsmann: A master of darkroom alchemy


A master of darkroom alchemy, Jerry Uelsmann taught the art of fine photographic printing alongside Ansel Adams in the 1960s and 70s, He rebuffed the purist sensibilities and previsualization techniques popular in photography at the time, wanting his photographs to serve instead as symbols capable of eliciting emotions and reflective thinking. Uelsmann's ensuing body of work is distinctive, his black-and-white images marked by juxtaposition and a benevolent sense of humor. Even today, as digital technologies for image editing have become prevalent, Uelsmann remains committed to the darkroom and the use of analog devices. Drawn from 50 years of work, this exhibition will complement a more extensive retrospective to be held concurrently at the Peabody Essex Museum (PEM) in Salem, MA.
