Photographer Ted Orland – the exhibition curator and longtime friend of Uelsmann and his wife, Maggie Taylor – has assembled 55 images that he says “resonate with Jerry’s personality, his work ethic, his way of living and his philosophy.” Orland examined over a thousand original prints. His selections concentrate on “the emotional content of the work, images that convey a sense of tranquility, a softness that has endured through the process of creation.”
