Since the 1960s, Jerry Uelsmann has been combining multiple negatives in the darkroom to create surrealistic photographs. His photographs vary in content and subject matter, though a number of motifs can be found. Uelsmann often uses hands, clouds, trees, water, and the human figure. A hamburger, however, can only be found in one of his montages, Little Golden Hamburger Tree, a photograph that assures his admirers that despite his enormous skill and profound artistic vision, Uelsmann doesn’t take himself too seriously.
