Books by Jerry Uelsmann



Acclaimed as an international master of photomontage, Jerry Uelsmann creates images of Yosemite so wild and personal that they expand the concept of nature photography. In his efforts to fathom the secrets of the park, Uelsmann says he wrestles with the Yosemite gods, fighting the whole notion of the romantic landscape tradition, every time he works with his Yosemite negatives. 64 duotone photos.

Uelsmann narrates his own creative process in a fasinating visual account of a single day’s work in the darkroom. Beginning with his first effort of the day, he describes his various ideas, reactions to them, and feelings of dissatisfaction and gratifcation as he moves toward the final, successful image. The reader watches the photograph grow as Uelsmann adds elements to the composite and subtracts others, a rare opportunity to observe the artist at work.
