Jerry Uelsmann

I’ve discovered randomly American photographer Jerry Uelsmann. Active from the 1960s till today, he creates photomontages by overprinting several negatives in the darkroom using up to a dozen enlargers simultaneously, long before digital cameras and Photoshop made such montages much quicker and easier.

Below are my favourite pictures, the ones that look similar to Surrealists photomontages by Dora Maar or paintings by Paul Delvaux. I’ve researched interviews but he does not comment on a particular interest for houses.
