Genius Pool: Abelardo Morell

Born in Havana Cuba, this photographer is well known in the art world for his innovative camera obscura images where he projects various parts of the world–exotic and urban alike–onto interior spaces. Times magazine featured him “In Focus”.

“Morell uses the basic principles of camera obscura to create these dreamy superimpositions. In some instances, the outside overpowers the inside, leaving only a trace of the actual interior space…”
