I was reminded of the work of Abelardo Morell while browsing the fantastic Honestly...WTF this week. I saw the video posted below on TV ages ago and was stunned by Morell's beautiful series Camera Obscura. He takes landscapes out of context by bringing the outside in - I wish there were a mechanism that you could turn on to project the view onto your bedroom wall whenever you feel like it (but, y'know, only if you live somewhere gorgeous, not opposite a hairy trucker).
Tent Camera is a new and intriguing series. In 2010 Abelardo Morell created a light-proof tent and rigged up "periscope type optics making it possible to project a view of the nearby landscape onto whatever ground is under the tent. Inside this darkened space I use a view camera to record the effect." I love how the texture adds another immediate aspect to the image. (Quote via slightly lucid)
