Luis Mallo Bio
About The Artist
Inspired by the hidden and the mysterious, Luis Mallo captures cityscapes and interiors that always remain out of reach. His photographs often reveal as much as they conceal, obfuscated by objects in the foreground that both prevent the audience further access and entice it. In his In Camera series, scenes of urban life are visible behind fences, windows, and chains, thus inviting the viewer to observe, but never to participate in, the cityscape. Mallo has seen his work exhibited at a number of institutions, including the Brooklyn Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston.
