Artist Bio

Luis Delgado-Qualtrough’s photographic work integrates narrative and sequential still images to create idea-driven content. His work has been exhibited worldwide, and his prints and artist’s books are held by many museums, institutions, and private collectors. In 2015, Delgado’s early work from 1975–1980 was exhibited with contemporary prints at Corden Potts Gallery, San Francisco, and at Paris Photo. Vintage silver prints (1980) from the same exhibition were placed by curator Alexis Fabry in the Leticia and Stanislas Poniatowski Collection, as well as the Jean-Louis Larivière Collection. His artist book from the same era, The people of San Miguel: A portrait collection of Sierra Totonaco Indians (San Francisco: Califrisco Press, 1975-2005) was added to The Wittliff Collections at Texas State University in San Marcos. Images from another artist’s book, Cuentos Chinos (2008), were curated by Howard Bossen for the 2015 exhibition Seeing China: Photographic Views and Viewpoints at the Michigan State University Museum, East Lansing, and was later acquired for the Michigan State University Libraries collections. Delgado’s artist’s books 47 Diaries (2014) and El canto por un pan (2013) were exhibited at Rayko Photo Center, San Francisco. Delgado has been recognized by the Discoveries of the Meeting Place, FotoFest; he has received grants from the Peter S.
