Mirror mirror on the wall…

I’ve looked at a lot of self-portraits. Of artists by another artist. Themselves. And there almost always staring right at themselves. Its creepy. Like self-hypnosis. Like they’re ready to do the horizontal mombo with themselves. I have scrambled a group of artists here who gazed into their own eyes and fell in love. Or glanced to one side because someone has just walked into the room. Like their wife. And caught them.  I’ve included myself. I’m the one that looks like Van Gogh. But isn’t.

Aberlardo Morell

Okay. First of all this is a bit confusing. I mean Abelardo Morell. His work. From what I can discern he uses rooms as cameras. Okay. Any questions. Well lets look at some of his work first.

He cuts off all light coming into a room. Using tape or some kind of board. The room is dark. Except for a small hole in the tape. This acts like a pin hole. The room is like the inside of a camera. The image from outside the room is projected into the room. Upside down. As it were. Then he photographs what he sees.

Or using an overhead projector you can project an image from a book onto objects in a dark room. Then photograph the effect. And he has done that as well.

Here is a short documentary about the photographer.
