Photographer Abelardo Morell, a visiting lecturer at Princeton this spring, will discuss his work at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 13, in the Stewart Film Theater, 185 Nassau St.
The Cuban-born Morell is known for his original "camera obscura" approach to photography. His work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York as well as more than 40 other museums around the United States and abroad.
A professor of art at the Massachusetts College of Art, Morell is a Class of 1932 Fellow in Visual Arts in the Council of the Humanities this semester, teaching a course on "Advanced Problems in Photography."
Morell has published numerous collections of his photographs and has received several honors and awards, including a Cintas Foundation grant and a Guggenheim Fellowship. Filmmaker Allie Humenuk currently is working on "Out of Place," a documentary about Morell's work and experience as an artist.
The talk is sponsored by the Program in Visual Arts and the Council of the Humanities.
