Photography by Abelardo Morell

    Abelardo Morell

    Abelardo Morell travels the world and converts full-size rooms (some spare, some ornately rococo) into immense camera obscura devices. He brings the outside in through a tiny pin-hole, and by the alchemy of optics, the outside is projected quite naturally upside down superimposing and hugging the surfaces of everything in the room. Then, he photographs the resulting “installation” with his 8 x 10 view camera and enlarges the prints to mural size.

    The effect is dizzying and delightful. And the photographs get better and better as you study them and soak in the exquisite overlapping details.

    Morell who teaches photography at the Massachusetts College of Art and Princeton University, became famous for his black-and white camera obscura images (as well as other black-and-white subject matter). However, he just recently started to explore using color film, and in many ways, the results are even more realistically rich and unnervingly set free from the laws of gravity.
