DPP: Are there some darkroom supplies that are tough to find these days? Uelsmann: Its not too difficult; theyre just at a higher price. B H is the big supplier, and the interesting thing is the myth thats out there that the older. They produced a wonderful book/catalog for the exhibit. DPP: What type of enlargers are you using? Uelsmann: Saunders LPL 4550XL enlargers. They have variable contrast heads. They give me the control I need because I frequently do contrast dodging. Fairly frequently, Ill leave all the negatives in the enlargers, then the next day, when I look at the print, Ill think of another option, either a better way of printing the image or an additional element that could be added. Im 81 years old now. Whatever the images are, I just try to work authentically. Rarely does the image come completely together when Im looking at contact sheets. In some cases, Im in a sense making the same image over the last 60. I have all these resources from negatives that Ive taken over many years, as well as recent shoots such as the one I did in Central Park while I was in New York for the AIPAD show.
So, if you bear that in mind as you look through my new retrospective book, you can see where theres often a simpatico feeling between images that are laid out opposite each other.
