Jerry Uelsmann “Apocalypse II” 1967. Offset lithograph print by Poster Gallery 1969, Long Island City, NY. Measures 22″x 29″. Apocalypse II unites a negative image of figures on a beach with a mirror image of a tree to create a likely allusion to the Cold War fear of nuclear annihilation. Pre-Photoshop, Jerry Uelsmann created this composite photographic tableau in the darkroom, meticulously printing a single image from multiple negatives. The landscape was a frequent setting for his seamless ethereal visions.
