JACKSONVILLE -- Jerry Uelsmann’s experiments with photography in the late 1950s and early ‘60s weren’t conventional, and that is one reason why his work has endured.

Uelsmann will discuss Postvisualization, an illustrated lecture of his life in photography, during a lecture Friday, Oct. 15. The talk will be in the Lazzara Performance Hall in the Fine Arts Center on the University of North Florida campus at 7:30 p.m.

The lecture is free and open to the public.

Uelsmann’s work also is on display in the University Gallery. “The Art of Jerry N. Uelsmann” runs through Thursday, Oct. 21.

The Detroit-born Uelsmann began teaching at the University of Florida in 1960, became a graduate research professor of art in 1974 and is now retired. His work has been exhibited in more than 100 individual shows across the globe in the last 30 years.

Uelsmann’s work is in the permanent collections of many museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art in New York; the Chicago Art Institute; the Victoria and Albert Museum in London; the Bibliotheque National in Paris; and the National Museum of American Art in Washington, D.C.
