A postcard view of the Brooklyn Bridge receives a gritty makeover when Morell projects the image onto a tar paper rooftop. Experimenting with mood and texture, he turned a floorless tent into a camera obscura. Light entering a periscope-like opening sets an image onto the ground, providing what Morell calls "an old-fashioned look."
