A Mind of Winter includes photographs created at various sites in Maine during the winter of 2014–2015. Generously funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, the exhibition represents Morell’s first prolonged engagement in the state since his graduation from Bowdoin College and his first creative response to winter and the theme of climate change. The winner of the Infinity Award in Art given by the International Center of Photography in 2011, Morell taught at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design for twenty-seven years.
