From Jerry Uelsmann (2003): "During my life as an image-maker, I have encountered many works of art that have left a deep and lasting impression. There was a strong feeling of relevance that imbedded them in my consciousness. They became a source of inspiration that encouraged me to explore the boundaries of my own visual quest. The images in this book represent a small selection of artists, art, and art trends that have evoked a lasting sense of personal rapport. It is with deep gratitude that I pay homage, celebrate, and reference these sources."

From the publisher: "The photographs in Referencing Art, spanning the past five decades, reveal a relatively unknown facet of Jerry Uelsmann's working process: an on-going dialogue with the history of art. These images are tributes to artists whose work has made a deep and lasting impression on Uelsmann, and the range of works cited in this new book is vast as he pays homage to Man Ray, Max Ernst, Alberto Giacommetti, Ansel Adams, Marcel Duchamp, Alexander Calder et al. Jerry Uelsmann's work is included in most major photography collections in the United States and Europe, and has been exhibited throughout the world. A five-page essay by Alex Alberro and Nora M. Alter, entitled "Imagination and the Image," accompanies this remarkable anthology."
