Camera Obscura Image of El Vedado, Havana, Looking Northwest, 2002, copyright Abelardo Morell
Cuban-born photographer Abelardo Morell has been converting inhabited rooms all over the world into settings for his topsy-turvy camera obscura projections. Recently he switched from black-and-white to color film — with astonishing multi-layered effects. In a great 9-and-a-half-minute exclusive audio interview with Lens Culture, you can listen to Morell as he talks about his new color work, and you can see a portfolio tracing his evolution as a photographer — including three new mural-size color installations.
