Photographs by Abelardo Morell
Essay by Diana Gaston
Museum of Photographic Arts, SanDiego, CA
"Consistently throughout his work, Morell disrupts the boundaries of a fixed or permanent understanding of things. Like Lewis Caroll's White Rabbit, Morell tests the malleability of the everyday world, presenting ordinary objects from absurd or unfamiliar vantage points . . . Like the photographer, who transforms his subjects through unexpected perspectives and mesmerizing description, the viewer becomes transfixed by the potential of the commonplace ."
