Camera Obscura - Abelardo Morell

I made my first picture using camera obscura techniques in my darkened living room in 1991. In setting up a room to make this kind of photograph, I cover all windows with black plastic in order to achieve total darkness. Then, I cut a small hole in the material I use to cover the windows. This opening allows an inverted image of the view outside to flood onto the back walls of the room. Typically then I focused my large-format camera on the incoming image on the wall then make a camera exposure on film. In the beginning, exposures took from five to ten hours,Over time, this project has taken me from my living room to all sorts of interiors around the world. One of the satisfactions I get from making this imagery comes from my seeing the weird and yet natural marriage of the inside and outside.

A few years ago, in order to push the visual potential of this process, I began to use color film and positioned a lens over the hole in the window plastic in order to add to the overall sharpness and brightness of the incoming image. Now, I often use a prism to make the projection come in right side up. I have also been able to shorten my exposures considerably thanks to digital technology, which in turn makes it possible to capture more momentary light. I love the increased sense of reality that the outdoor has in these new works .The marriage of the outside and the inside is now made up of more equal partners.

I love the way this country smells. I’ll never forget it. It’s kind of spicy.

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to black

The FCC’s website to handle filing comments related to Net Neutrality has been overwhelmed with traffic and the submission deadline is being pushed back to July 18th @ midnight.

I thought I’d share the letter I signed on to from the Congressional Progressive Caucus asking the FCC to enact Net Neutrality rules and to protect the open internet.
