Juror Abelardo Morell selected And Baby (I Know a Story series) from over eight hundred entries to be part of the 2016 Texas National show at Stephen F. Austin State University Art Gallery in Nacogdoches Texas. The show runs April 9 – June 11, 2016.
My passion for the work of Morell motivated me to enter the competition. I was introduced to his work through the constructed image series Alice In Wonderland and have followed his many photographic adventures from Paper to the more current Camera Obscura and Tent Camera.
His work is diverse in process but singular in vision. Through the use of a variety of photographic means of reproduction he asks us to consider the photograph as a liveable place that may be experienced with our bodies as well as our minds.
