The camera obscura seems little short of miraculous, even after the optical rationale has been explained... That Abelardo Morell was able to photograph the thing in action, in effect producing photographs of a photographic process, and that he has done so with such lapidar and transformative eloquence, is breathtaking.
—Luc Sante, from his introduction to Camera Obscura
