Abelardo Morell [Contemporary Photographer]

Abelardo Morell is a photographer who has a unique style for his pictures. One of the things he does is to take a picture of a room and then overlap a picture of an outside scene upside down. It sounds bizarre, but it looks quite interesting.

He uses a camera obscura- a lensless camera- to take some of his shots.

My Eyeglasses, 1991
This picture really stands out to me because I once had the idea to do a painting like this. I love that you can see the pots in the distance, blurry, and clear in the glasses. He is letting people see the world through his eyes.

The Brooklyn Bridge in Bedroom, 1997
