Jerry Uelsmann - Self Portrait


The mind knows more than the eye sees.

He has made it to our collective conscious via an uber successful poster-print campaign. Yet another case of you've probably never heard his name but once you see it you will recognize his work immediately. He is Ansel Adams on acid. The king of the photomontage creates surreal landscapes featuring houses perched atop tree trunks, beautiful nudes morphing into rock and mystical hands holding objects that seem to unlock life's great mysteries.

Jerry was raised in the Motor City and trained at upper state New York's Rochester Institute of Technology before settling in 1960 as a professor at the University of Florida in Gainesville. In 1967, the Museum of Modern Art featured his first solo exhibit. He is the recipient of endless international awards and accolades.
