A retrospective of Morell’s career: 105 photographs spanning 30 years. Photographs by Abelardo Morell. Introduction by Richard Woodward. TF Editores, Spain. Phaidon Press, London. English/Spanish/French Publication.
“Abelardo Morell’s camera transforms the recesses of the world into something even more shadowy. The fact that what he finds in these shadows is quite ordinary — books, kids’ toys, a paper bag — makes the results magically disorienting and (as in the cover image of a vase perched on the edge of a table) precarious. This year, a fantastic selection of his work was published, “Abelardo Morell.” —Geoff Dyer
