The Mind's Eye: 50 Years of Photography by Jerry Uelsmann

On view February 11, 2012 to July 15, 2012

Located in the: Special Exhibition Galleries

Surreal, funny and provocative, Jerry Uelsmann's photographs are icons of American photo history. His most famous technique -- seamlessly fabricating photographs from unrelated negatives to create imaginary scenes -- cemented his standing as a leading light of non-literal photography. The exhibition combines Uelsmann's most celebrated works with many never-before-seen pieces for his first retrospective in 40 years.

Support provided by the East India Marine Associates (EIMA) of the Peabody Essex Museum.

The Mind's Eye: 50 Years of Photography by Jerry Uelsmann is part of PEM's Year of Photography, which is sponsored in part by WBUR, Boston's NPR news station, Hunt's Photo & Video, and Canon.
