A peerless black and white photographer, Morell considers his profession and pleasures with a light hand in this self-portrait. Nodding to his well- known images of monumental books, he seems to ask in this work which—his photography or his reading—has been more influential in shaping his profile. What we see endlessly changes like a Rorschach pattern; the portrait image flickers between negative space and solid form.
