Small Woods Where I Met Myself: Jerry Uelsmann's departure from straight photography

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapter


In the article I investigate the differences between Ansel Adams' and Jerry Uelsmann's use of nature in their respective photography. Through their attitudes, approaches to, and involvement with nature their different relations to the photographic medium and the creative process unfold. Uelsmann's departure from the straight photographic tradition - that Ansel Adams came to symbolize - is in the article explained through an analysis of Uelsmann's and Adams' use of nature in their respective art making.
