Jerry Uelsmann: Undiscovered Self

Jerry Uelsmann: Undiscovered Self


Undiscovered Self serves as a retrospective exhibition of Jerry Uelsmann’s work spanning over the last 50 years. He remains the forerunner of photomontage in America for the 20th century as he employs multiple negatives to create intricate darkroom works of art. The process involves the combination of his ever growing negatives collection and numerous enlargers to produce the final, dream-like image. Uelsmann’s re-contextualized interpretation of landscape and reality dynamically require the viewer to critically analyze their own understanding of the surreal composition.
