Abelardo Morell, "Rock Paper Scissors"

Bonni Benrubi Gallery , Chelsea Saturday December 15 2012 10:00 - 18:00
The transitory feel of Morell's photographs is due in no small part to his approach in taking them: They are actually photos of other images projected on a wall or similar surface. His latest works continue in this vein, created by using a kind of camera obscura made from a lightproof tent with a periscope that throws views of the surrounding scenery onto the bare ground inside the structure—which Morell then captures. It's a neat evocative twist on the notion of landscape photography.
