ABELARDO MORELL: PROJECTING ITALY


September 5, 2021-January 2, 2022

Projection of Italian landscape inside of a room

Abelardo Morell (US American, b. 1948), Camera Obscura: View of the Florence Duomo in Tuscany President’s Office in Palazzo Strozzi, Sacrati, Italy, 2017, archival pigment print, 30” x 40” (image). Clementi Family Collection Fund, 2019.150.

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. By creating a dark room with no light entering other than through a small pinhole, Morell brings the world outside into the room, projected upside down on the opposite wall. This exhibition highlights Morell’s tent-camera and camera obscura photographs of sites in Italy in honor of the twentieth anniversary of the Center for Italian Culture at Fitchburg State University.
