Florida Museum of Photographic Arts to open ‘Undiscovered Self’ exhibition by Jerry Uelsmann

(PR NewsChannel) / June 22, 2016 / TAMPA, Fla. 

FMOPAPlease visit the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts for the opening of Undiscovered Self, an exhibition by innovative photographic artist Jerry Uelsmann. The exhibition runs through December 16, 2016.

Undiscovered Self serves as a retrospective exhibition of Uelsmann’s work spanning over the last 50 years.  He prevails as the forerunner of photomontage in America in 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.

“We are absolutely delighted to be exhibiting the work of a darkroom pioneer who creates such unique photographic arts.  Mr. Uelsmann’s meditative photomontages arouse curiosity in anyone who views them” says Zora Carrier, PhD FMoPA’s Executive Director.
