Abelardo Morell

Abelardo Morell's well-known series of camera obscuras as well as images of objects include recent camera obscuras of Cuba. Based on an optical principle known for centuries, Morell blacks out the windows in a room, leaving a small aperture which, in effect, transforms the space into a camera and overlays the world outside on the inside. Like the camera obscura work, Morell's pictures of objects share the curious feeling of being both odd and familiar. The mechanized working of a clock as well as laboratory test tubes become the spires and buildings of a futuristic metropolis. They are at once simple and intricate and full of details transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary that Morell's lens seems always to capture.
