Tent Camera Obscura 7 March - 3 May 2014

Jackson Fine Art is proud to present Tent Camera Obscura, a solo exhibition of photographs by renowned artist, Abelardo Morell. This will be his second exhibition with Jackson Fine Art, running in tandem with Abelardo Morell: The Universe Next Door, a touring retrospective on view February 23rd through May 18th at the High Museum in Atlanta. Over the past 25 years, Morell has created photographs that are full of magic and wonder, revealing unseen beauty in our everyday world. Citing classical and contemporary influences ranging from Giovanni Battista Piranesi to Ernest Hemingway to Minor White, Morell takes a modernist approach to his photographs, while exploring timeless themes and conveyors of cultural meaning such as family, books, maps, money and museums. His keen interest in optics and the mechanics of photography has compelled him to explore a number of techniques including photograms, still-life tableaux, stop-motion studies, camera obscura and his self-devised tent camera.
