    Abelardo Morell, a Cuban–born American photographer, has become internationally renowned for images that use the language of photography to explore visual surprise and wonder.

    One of Morell's signature approaches is his use of the camera obscura, an optical device known since the Renaissance that can transform a darkened room into a giant camera. The High will install a mesmerizing walk-in camera obscura as part of the exhibition.

    You can support this much anticipated exhibition by joining the Friends of Morell. As a Friend, you will have the exclusive opportunity to receive a signed, limited-edition print of Morell's latest work commissioned by the High Museum of Art. Funds raised by the Friends of Morell will support the cost of the exhibition and provide funding for future photography commissions by the High.

    Organization & Support
    The exhibition was organized by the Art Institute of Chicago, in association with the J, Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, and the High Museum of Art, Atlanta.

    This exhibition is made possible by the Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation.

    Generous in-kind support for this exhibition is provided by Tru Vue, Inc., and Gemini Moulding, Inc.
