Abelardo Morell
[b. 1948, Havana, Cuba, lives in Brookline, Massachusetts.]

 In a way, photography has been my way of thinking, putting some thoughts together in a stretch—enough to make the picture ask questions, philosophical questions about the world. 
 The appetite for visual stuff is somewhat perverse now because it assumes that there is no intellectual appetite at the same time. It’s this weird “swallow it fast” and pay now. 
 I want my photographs to reflect a time when science, art, philosophy, and religion were closer brothers and sisters, as they were during Fox Talbot’s time. 
 When I started photography I had no idea what the shape of my work would be. Now it’s clear that one thing leads to another. I’m quite excited to be making new work. Whatever the next day brings is the most interesting to me.
