Abelardo Morell and Camera Obscura

Abelardo Morell. Camera Obscura: View of Times Square in Hotel Room, 2010

Ok, so this one is not exactly “queer”. It’s just that I was researching a lot about beds in photography – how they are used and what worlds such images create. And as I was doing this I stumbled upon Cuban-born Abelardo Morell and his images done by turning the rooms he inhabits into camera obscuras. He’s smart – oftentimes uses the prism to turn the image so it is not  upside down. I’m tempted to do this one day too!
