Morell’s photos balance austerity and playfullness

A camera obscura is the age-old principle behind that physics-class favorite, the pinhole camera. Let light from a small opening enter a dark space, and an inverted image of what’s on the other side of the opening will be projected within.

Camera obscura pictures make up half of the 36 images in “Behind the Seen: The Photographs of Abelardo Morell,” which runs at the Yale University Art Gallery through Aug. 10. The exhibition is in the way of a homecoming. Morell, who teaches at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, has a master of fine arts degree from Yale. He’ll be artist in residence there this academic year.
