The recently released full feature film on the artistic work of the husband and wife duo. Both Maggie Taylor and Jerry Uelsmann create layered dreamscapes that push the limits of the photographic media. The film touches on both the artists' processies and inspirations. Also discussed is the unique bond shared by the creative couple and what it is like to share a creative life.
Uelsmann works with a traditional darkroom and at times up to 12 enlargers to craft and shape his imagery. Uelsmann's work has been much celebrated; in 1967 he received a guggenheim Fellowship and in 1972 a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship. He is a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain, a founding member of the Society of Photographic Education, and a former trustee of the Friends of Photography. Uelsmann's photographs are in the permanent collections of many museums worldwide, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), Chicago Art Institute, International Museum of Photography at the George Eastman House, Victoria and Albert Museum, Bibliothèque nationale de France, National Museum of American Art, Moderna Museet, National Gallery of Canada, National Gallery of Australia, Museum of Fine Arts (Boston), National Galleries of Scotland, the Center for Creative Photography, Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, and National Museum of Modern Art (Kyoto).
Taylor has used the digital darkroom- computers, scanners replace the camera and images emerge through layers. This new means to produce, this digital art has been well received by many notable institutions including the Center for Creative Photography, George Eastman House, Harry Ransom Center, High Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts (Houston), Ogden Museum of Southern Art, Princeton University Art Museum, Cleveland Museum of Art, Fogg Art Museum, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Samuel P.
