Abelardo Morell: Projecting Italy

Abelardo Morell: Projecting Italy

Boston-based and world-renowned photographer Abelardo Morell has been using the camera obscura since the early 1990s, creating a body of work defined by the contemporary use of a technology that predates the camera.

This exhibition highlights Morell’s tent-camera and camera obscura photographs of sites in Italy in honor
