Jerry Uelsmann, Maggie Taylor

The talents of “Jerry and Maggie” were on display in a joint presentation hosted by Atlanta Celebrates Photography last Thursday in Atlanta. It was classic photo composite technique (Uelsmann) vs Photoshop mastery (Taylor) on display. The matter of fact discussion about creation of images that just blow away the viewer was an interesting juxtaposition within the visual context presented throughout the night.

And of course there was the very humorous interplay of the couple trading jibes during the discussion, “ If a married man stands in the woods alone… is he still wrong?”

Jerry Uelsmann has been called a "legend" and a "master photographer". Using labor intensive techniques to achieve his crisp, dreamlike, black and white compositions, Uelsmann is one of photography’s best known darkroom pioneers. He has exhibited in galleries and museums worldwide and is in the permanent collections of major institutions in over 6 countries.

Maggie Taylor works solely with digital images. Her playful spirit comes through in her work and contributes to its wide acceptance. She won the Santa Fe Center for Photography’s Project Competition in 2004 and her work has been exhibited throughout the United States and Europe and is represented within the permanent collections of numerous museums.
