    Yes! There was an exhibition of his work at the James Michener Museum in Doylestown, PA earlier this year. I was amused that there were pieces that at first look might scream "PHOTOSHOP" and then next to it is the title card "Silver gelatin print 1968."

    They had a short video showing him in his darkroom with about 5 or 6 monster enlargers lined up so he could make setups and then create multiple prints as a sort of assembly line operation. In a lecture about him at the museum, someone commented that he was very generous in explaining his techniques to others -- then suggested that was because even after he told you, you still couldn't do it!

    Awesome work.

    Thanks for the post Ann. I have admired his work from the time I began shooting; he continues to astonish with his imagination and his execution.
    An assortment of F-series Nikons with quite a few Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and, just to help keep Duracell solvent, a D800.

    Favourite films: (1). KE ("Kodachrome Era"): 35mm: PKM25 and PKR64, HP5/Tri-X; 120: PKR64, PanF, FP4. (2). PKE ("Post-Kodachrome Era"): (a) 35mm: E100G, HP5 Plus/Tri-X and Delta 3200; (b) 120: E100G, PanF Plus, FP4 Plus, TMax 100.

    Last year in my summer teenage darkroom class I was talking about burning and dodging and some one said "oh, Photoshop" and I said "oh, no darkroom".

    It is amazing that so many people don't realize that those techniques come from a long traditional use of the darkroom. But then so many people have very little knowledge about the history of photography, so I suppose that makes sense.

    On Lynda.com, there's a series on Jerry Uelsman and his wife Maggie Taylor. It seems Jerry didn't take to Photoshop while Maggie Taylor did.

    Am a bit confused, Jerry is very old school. All that work is being done in the darkroom

    He was teaching at the University of Florida the year before I graduated. A very gracious man. I'm sorry that at the time my understanding of his work was not very good. His technique was incredable.

    He was doing these before I was born, he's old school alright. And I've loved his creations for a long time. The thought that goes into them is incredible enough, never mind the execution.

    It's interesting that the use of photoshop as a verb has a perjorative meaning. "That image has been photoshopped", in other words the image has been falsified.
