Jerry Uelsmann is one of the most famous master of the modern photography. Since the beginning of his career, he has become the pioneer of a special approach diametrically opposite to the prevalent aesthetics, influencing an entire generation of photographs. His surrealistic works come from the complex combination of different elements put analogically together in an enigmatic way. As declared by the artist himself “all the information are there, and yet the mystery remains”: as a matter of fact, his images challenge the realism and the photographical credibility by evoking mysterious and appealing atmospheres.

The counterpoint for such images will certainly be Maggie Taylor’s works. She’s an American artist, whose photographs are on the boundary between photography and pictorial illustration and come from the manipulation obtained with the most recent digital technologies. The result will be the creation of mysterious images in which animal and human beings live together in a fantasy universe. In her works the artist succeeded in giving proof of how adaptable the photographic medium is, by mixing the new opportunities of the technological world with her own artistic language.

Fiction and reality, analogical and digital, small and big format, surrealism and imaginary become the main points of this unique confrontation between two important personalities in the world of photography.
