    • Cultural Impact
      • From Minor White, he learned that his camera had the ability not only to record images, but also that "it did have the potential of transcending the initial subject matter.”
      • He began work as a graduate assistant in the laboratory at Indiana, but decided that this was not the right field for him.

    • wizard in the darkroom !!!!
    • Whoa, how did he do that?
      • Superimposing Images in darkroom.
      • Suddenly I gave myself a slap and thought “Oh, my God, if I put my negatives in different enlargers I could move the paper from easel to easel rather than constantly switching the negatives in the enlarger.”
      • Superimpose: Place or lay (one thing) over another, typically so that both are still evident.
    • “ My creative process begins when I get out with the camera and interact with the world. A camera is truly a license to explore.” Jerry Uelsmann. “ There’s a lot of source material once you have the freedom of not having to complete an image at the camera.” Jerry Uelsmann. EVERYTHING is an inspiration to him.
