“Luis Delgado’s composite polyptychs do not alter the content of the images, they only bring them together in a synthesis that is at times political, erotic or historical. Delgado is an artist concerned with the use and abuse of imagery. The images he appropriates from statuary, comic books, paintings, and other media, are combined in unpredictable ways. As with Rorschach stains, the viewer of these polyptychs finds herself/himself making her/his own free associations and interpretations of Delgado’s works”.    Statement by Fernando Castro

Luis Delgado-Qualtrough became a photographer in Mexico where he grew up. He began his work documenting folk mores and customs as well as pre-Columbian artifacts. Today he is particularly interested in exploring different aspects of visual narrative with emphasis in iconography and gesture. 

He creates photography based prints, books, and installations with history and societal systems as his theme, specifically the concept of the hero and the anti-hero. He uses a visual language of icons and gestures assembled into compound images to create narratives that address this issue. This language, which he has gathered over many years, consists of photographs of iconography and inanimate representations from many historical and mundane settings throughout the world, as well as imagery taken from mass media outlets.

His goal is to achieve a uniquely personal social commentary and analysis using his language of iconography as its voice.
