Inspired in equal parts by the magical properties of scientific phenomena, the potential of poetry to transform the mundane, and the camera as an agent of vision and light, Abelardo Morell's photographs explore the workings of the everyday world. He approaches the medium as a philosopher might, constantly questioning and probing its inherent properties, seeking a more complete understanding of the camera's logic and mystery. Through the most fundamental principles of photography, he explores optical phenomena that have long been understood by artists and scientists but never fully visualized as images. His subjects are decidedly familiar - domestic objects and interiors, water running from a faucet or spilled on a tabletop, illustrated books and
maps, his children at play- as if to demonstrate the extraordinary visual possibilities at work on the surface of the commonplace.
