Abelardo Morell

I review Brookline photographer Abelardo Morell “Pictures in Pictures” exhibit at Bernard Toale Gallery here. The show includes his recent color camera obscura photos.

It’s instructive to compare Morell’s 2007 color shot of Santa Maria della Salute (above) with a black-and-white version he shot there the year before, which you can see (and which I reviewed) here.

“Abelardo Morell: Pictures in Pictures,” Bernard Toale Gallery, 450 Harrison Ave., Boston, May 14 to June 28, 2008.

Pictured: “Camera Obscura Image of Santa Maria della Salute with Scaffolding in Palazzo Bedroom,” 2007; “’The Night Cafe,' Yale University Art Gallery,” 2008; and “North America,” 2007.
