The Amazing Camera Obscura Images Of Abelardo Morell
I've seen Abelardo Morell's camera obscura photographs online in the past, and while they always seemed like part of a neat little project I sort of dismissed them as just a bit of a lark. I assumed—I know now wrongly—that perhaps the photographer was a bit of a one-trick pony. Nothing could be further from the truth, and I finally realized that when I saw his new book, "The Universe Next Door." Morell is clearly a splendid photographer with a tremendous eye, and the sort of scientific mind to make imagery that is inherently photographic (i.e. about the medium as much as it is of the medium) which is something that I'm especially drawn to. More than that, his work is much more than just great camera obscura images—and it's a pleasure to discover what else he can do.
