Abelardo Morell’s Camera Obscura in Color

Abelardo Morell has gained fame for his work with the camera obscura, one of the oldest methods of photography. I’ve enjoyed his black and white work in the past, but while browsing Rachel Hulin’s blog the other day, I ran across this post on his new color images. They’re fantastic.

The Year in Pictures has several more pictures and a lengthy description of the process and of Morell’s work in the field. More photos from this work is also available on Morell’s site (the color images are under Recent Work; the black and white pictures are under Camera Obscura). You can also find information there on one of his previous books, Camera Obscura, about those B&W photos.

Bonni Benrubi Gallery will have an exhibition of this work through December 6.
