Jerry Uelsmann. Forty years ago, Jerry Uelsmann was an avant-garde photographer, using multiple negatives in a darkroom to create a single print that juxtaposed images in a strange, surreal way. Manipulating an image was considered heresy by some photography purists back then. Today Uelsmann is the traditionalist, continuing to use multiple enlargers in a darkroom rather than computer programs such as Photoshop for his ravashing works.
Erik Johansson. We talked about this guys work in class, but when I came across it again on Pinterest I was still super impressed. Knowing he uses hundred of layers is amazing. HIs work is so detailed and imaginative. I enjoy his work a lot, especially the blending of nature with other things.
