    • JERRY uelSMANN
      By Laurel Massicott
    • Relevant Bio.
      Life time: June 11, 1934 – Present
      Born: U.S.A Detroit Michigan
      Style: Surrealist Photographer
      Preferred Medium: Silver Gelatin Print
      B.F.A at Rochester Institute of Technology (1957)
      M.S & M.F.A. at Indiana University (1960)
      Former trustee of “Friends of Photography”
    • Relevant Bio. Cont.
      First job offer, he taught photography at the University of Florida where he became a professor of art in 1974
      Had 100 individual art shows in the United States
      Used 12 different enlargers to get desired effects
      Now lives in Gainesville with wife (artist) Maggie Taylor
    • Inspiration
      He was inspired by nature and natural beauty
      Examples of this natural beauty include nude women, hands, birds, trees, streams, and many others.
      Additionally, he seems to be inspired by freedom and flight. This can be seen in his photography in the form of flying people, vast landscapes, and birds.
    • Inspiration Cont.
      It is likely, also, that his wife, Maggie Taylor, inspired him because of her artistic influences. She probably helped him with ideas for photos.
      Many of his photos depict scenes of the northern country where he grew up. It then can be inferred that he was inspired by the landscape, water features, plant life, and solidarity of that part of the country.

    • Description
      Generally dark photo
      Has two cupped hands with a ripple of water in them
      The background is mountainous with pine trees everywhere
      The hands seem to be coming out of a black lake with a first person view of the hands
      The mountains are slightly reflected on the lake.
    • Analysis
      Foreground: Hands
      Middle ground: Lake and trees
      Background: Mountains/Mist
      Emphasis: On the ripple ( the brightest point on the photo besides the sky)
      Symmetrical balance
      The foreground, middle, and back ground show proportion of the hands and trees
      Leading line of the edges of the lake to the vanishing point where the mountains meet
    • Interpretation
      The photo was taken to show the eerie beauty of solitude in nature.
      To make humans seem like a small part of a great and beautiful world
      The water in the hands represents unity and purification through and with nature
    • Judgement
      I like this photo because it is surreal, yet it is plausible to see in real life
      It is well composed, and I like the way the sky is about to get dark
      I also appreciate the clarity of the photo
      It is a beautiful portrayal of man and nature coexisting.
