Louis DeLuco   photographic art

Louis DeLuco has a B.A. in Art from UC Berkeley and a M.A. in Fine Art Photography from Lone Mountain College, San Francisco.

He has been an artist for most of his life and a Marin County California resident for over thirty years.  His artistic path led him through the areas of sculpture, painting, mural design, advertising design, printmaking, and to his main focus, photography.

Louis DeLuco’s color and black & white photography portfolios encompasse documentary, landscape, figure, aircraft, Route 66, and architectural images.

From 1975 to 2006 the artist personally printed all of his black&white and color photographs. Switching to digital cameras in 2006, he now prints his work with archival pigment ink on archival paper.

Selected photographs have been published and exhibited nationally.

"In the second place award the photographer turns the familiar obelisk in Washington, D.C. into a surreal object that accentuates the spirituality of the Vietnam War Memorial running along one side of the picture." ...Peter Howe, Early Morning After Dark Juror.
