image

Gainesville’s husband-and-wife artists, Jerry Uelsmann and Maggie Taylor, will showcase their talents in their first documentary, Jerry & Maggie: This Is Not Photography on April 30, 2014 on Link TV at 8 p.m. EST (DirecTV 375 and DISH Network 9410).

The film features the surreal and groundbreaking photography of the Gainesville husband and wife duo. Uelsmann experiments in a darkroom. Taylor composes on a computer screen. Together, they broke free of traditional notions of photography to create haunting, layered dreamscapes that challenge the medium’s possibilities. Step inside their Florida compound to see their complementary work and contrasting processes­ and find out how they overcame the early skepticism of their art-world peers to become luminaries in their field.
