Light is at the heart of Regina DeLuise’s practice, whether she is photographing the body, a landscape, or a still life. Working with an 8x10 view camera, whose large size keeps her solidly in the physical world, DeLuise produces sensual, tactile palladium prints that investigate the sublime and mundane aspects of the places in which she finds herself. DeLuise has worked as far abroad as Italy, India, Nepal, and, most recently Thimpu, Bhutan.
DeLuise’s work is in the collection of several major institutions, including the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York; the Smithsonian Museum of American History in D.C, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, CA, and the Art Institute of Chicago in Illinois.
