Luis Delgado Qualtrough


Luis Delgado’s multi-paneled black and white grid pieces present a visual analysis of the iconographic typology of human institutions, such as the military, family, commerce, religion and law. With his photography rooted in the social documentary tradition, Delgado uses humor, symbolism and free association to produce visually engaging work that allows for personal interpretation and relevance, as well as analysis within the traditional aesthetic and symbolic confines of the subject.
