Born in Cuba in 1948, Abelardo Morell immigrated to the US in 1962. He attended Bowdoin College and earned his MFA from Yale University in 1981. Morell's photographs have been widely exhibited and collected by major museums throughout the world. A nationally-touring solo show of his work—Abelardo Morell and the Camera Eye—traveled to six venues, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. He has held residencies at major museums, including the Boston Athenaeum and Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, and received grants from the Cintas and Guggenheim Foundations, and won the Rappaport Prize in 2006. A documentary film about Morell, Shadow of the House by Allie Humenuk, was released in 2007. Known for his photographs of camera obscura projections, Morell also photographed stage sets, such as seen in this print. Morell is a professor at Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Morell has shown in several PRC exhibitions, including Anxious Libraries: Photography and the Fate of Reading (1996), Representing the Intangible (2000), and Voyages (per)formed (2001), and has given several workshops. He is represented by Bonni Benrubi Gallery in New York and Carroll and Sons in Boston. He lives in Brookline, MA. www.abelardomorell.net
