    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.

    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.

    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.
