Morell “Vertical Landscape” Bowdoin College

Abelardo Morell’s photographs of snow are not what you would expect. Laced together from multiple negatives Morell captures textures from close up, panoramas and negative cliché verre prints into large-scale photographs.
Author Cate McQuaid says: “Morell depicts winter as rugged, encompassing, and ethereal.
For “A Mind of Winter,” one of the most challenging photographs to make was “Panorama of Winter Woods — Black & White Negatives.” When the temperature was 10 degrees and “We were out there for two or three hours,” Morell says. “We’d have to bring the camera into the car and warm it up.”
McQuaid states that: “The result is a panorama seamlessly made of 13 vertical negatives. The snow is dark; trees glow; shadows shimmer and race.”
