World-renowned photographer Jerry Uelsmann comes to Southwest Florida for the opening of a retrospective exhibition of his work at the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery at Florida Southwestern State College.  Uelsmann is known for the complex darkroom techniques he pioneered in the 1950s and 60s to create his surreal images and is regarded as the pre-digital master of composite imagery and photomontage.

With more than 75 original photographs, including some never-before-seen works, this will mark one of the largest retrospective exhibitions of Uelsmann’s photography in recent years.  The artist himself joins us in studio ahead of his lecture at the opening reception to the exhibition on Jan. 11, along with Rauschenberg Gallery Director of Exhibitions and Collections, Jade Dellinger.
