Miscellaneous observations from an educational communicator’s perspective

Reinventing the pinhole camera One of the lessons I learned in my first photography class was how to make a pinhole camera. As you can see in the image above, my camera was hand-made with cardboard and duct tape. I had no idea back then that the pinhole camera could be taken to the unexpected new territory explored in the photos of Abelardo Morell. Morell transforms entire rooms into camera obscura devices using the same idea behind the pinhole camera. He then photographs the images projected on the walls—astonishing reflections of the views outside the room. The boundaries of creativity are always expanding thanks to innovative ways of seeing by artists like Morell.
