N.B. Abe Morell is an artist driven by inquisitiveness and appears to have an endless source of creative energy. A local to the Boston arts scene with worldwide prestige, Morell is also a longtime educator who has influenced a generation of practicing photographers.

Morell's photographs are often visually perplexing, from interiors illuminated with the exterior view projected upon them, to visual reexaminations of everyday objects. He rarely manipulates photographs beyond what the camera and light are capable of creating. The resulting works are grounded in a practice that is inherently photographic and one that references and is influenced by the history of artmaking, literature, film, and of course photography.
Estimate $2,000-3,000
