Uelsmann Untitled: A Retrospective

This handsome volume is published by the University Press of Florida and claims to be the “largest number of Uelsmann images collected in a single volume”.

Jerry N. Uelsmann is considered a forerunner of 20th century photomontage. He began teaching art at the University of Florida in 1960 and has continued to live and work in Florida. He is considered a master in his field and his work gathered great popular and critical attention and has continued to do so for over half a century.

The Library Art Collection has 2 works by Uelsmann in the John F. Germany Permanent Collection. “Garth” and “Photofield” can both be accessed at the following link:
