This is the person who made me become a photographer: Jerry Uelsmann.
I wrote a paper about him when I was about 13 years old, and ever since, photography was something I continually wanted to learn about. His mastery in photomontage is intriguing and inspiring for anyone who appreciates how much work is put into manual photography and processing darkroom images versus digital. His style incorporates collaging multiple images in the darkroom to create one fixed image, that creates a new and “surreal” world. He is truly a remarkable artist.
