Cuban-born Abelardo Morell (b.1948) began photographing his domestic environment after the birth of his son in 1986. Considering the world from a child's point of view, he photographed household objects from surprising perspectives to produce unfamiliar and disconcerting results that challenge the viewer's perception of reality. Morell continues to take photographs that explore reality and illusion and has created images with books, money, maps and paintings as their subject, alongside his best known series of camera obscura photographs.
