Untitled by Jerry Uelsmann (1969)

The photograph titled “Untitled” by Jerry Uelsmann, created in 1969, is a black and white image featuring a surreal composition. In the center of the photograph, there is a solitary tree with a full canopy of leaves and exposed roots, with a detached section of its root base and earth floating above it, creating a mirror image in the clear, reflective water below. The background showcases a calm body of water with mountainous terrain in the distance. The reflection in the water interestingly includes an inverted image of an eye, hinting at a surreal, dream-like quality consistent with Uelsmann’s style, which often involves complex, multiple exposures to construct a single coherent image that blends reality with fantasy.
