  1. Photography becomes more than art, more than paintings, or sculptures. It exposes the truth to life that a brush can barely compare to.

Photography becomes more than art, more than paintings, or sculptures. It exposes the truth to life that a brush can barely compare to. If there is a passion, a real love for the art, photography becomes consuming, sinking into the skin forever. Every aspect of the soul becomes sucked into every turn, corner, or endless hole of a photograph. Since the days of the camera obscura in the early 1700s, photographers have continually stretched the boundaries, developing an ever-growing list of styles.

[...] A more modern photographer by the name of Jerry Uelsmann was part of the postwar generation of black and white photographers. Like several of his time, he created montages and collages following his belief that mind knows more than the eye and camera can (Uelsmann). Merging photographs into one began in the 1930s as a way of representing what seemed impossible and see, let alone capture with straight photography. He was a surrealist, creating masterpieces in the darkroom with no digital aid. [...]


[...] This man may be hesitant or scared, but he knows he has to go through that door and face whatever it may bring, whatever life may bring. Uelsmann captured what so many fears, inevitability. The final photograph I chose is unofficially titled The Alpha Tree and was photographed in 2001. This clearly continued with his surrealism that was present throughout his works. Again he did the mirroring effect with the sky in the upper half and the billowing clouds forming the floor. [...]
