deloyartzphoto/Pablo de Loy Photography
Photographer Pablo de Loy was born in Uruguay in February 1973. At the age of 13, he moved with his family to Milan, Italy. His passion for photography came to fruition from a present he received from his aunt Rosario. It was his first SLR camera, a first step into the photography world. In Milan, Pablo completed his formative years in school, and began graphic design studies at Caterina da Siena School of Graphic Design and Photo Arts.
In 1991, he launched his first exhibit in Milan, Asturias, el mar, la gente y la tierra, a first traveling photographic assignment about people, culture and the land. A year later, Pablo had his second exhibit, entitled Genti del Caterina, at Caterina da Siena—a portrait exhibit highlighting people at his school. In 1993, after graduating as a marketing, graphic design and photography professional, Pablo returned to Uruguay. Back home, he pursued a career as a graphic designer at prestigious advertising agencies while furthering his studies at Universidad ORT.
Photography always remained his true passion. In the summer of 2000, Pablo moved to the United Sates to study English while working at different agencies. In 2006 after an absence of six years, he re-visited Uruguay. Struck by its stunning natural beauty, Pablo captured impressive images representative of his home country.
Later in the fall, the Embassy of Uruguay to the United States invited Pablo for a showcase of his artwork making possible his first photography exhibit in the United States, Memories from the Coast.
In 2007, he continued his photography travels. Pablo went to the People’s Republic of China to compose a memorable series showcasing Life in China featured in Alexandria, Virginia and other galleries in the metropolitan area of Washington, DC. The same year Pablo founded his studio “deloyartz photo” focusing on food, restaurants and travel. Among his successes, Pablo traveled with Chef Jose Andres throughout Spain resulting in two published books of the internationally renowned chef.
Pablo now travels every year to different countries in the world seeking to capture with his camera the essence, the culture and the color of the people and the land. Today, Pablo has permanent exhibits in Washington, DC, Virginia and New York.
His passion for photography started when his aunt Rosario gave him his first SLR camera.
In Milan, Pablo finished his school and began Graphic design studies at Caterina da Siena School of Graphic Design and Photo Arts: In 1991 he had his first exhibit in Milan: "Asturias el Mar la Gente y la Tierra," which was his first traveling photo assignment about people, culture and the land.
A year later he had his second exhibit at his school call "Genti del Caterina." This was an exhibit of portraits of people in his school.
In 1993 he graduated and went back to Uruguay, where he worked in graphic design at several advertising agencies and pursued further studies at ORT.
But photography remained his burning passion.
In August of 2000 Pablo moved to the United Sates to study English and he worked in a variety of places. It was in 2006 when, after an absence of six years, he re-visited Uruguay and was struck with its stunning beauty. In September of 2006, at the Embassy of Uruguay in Washington DC, he had his first photo exhibit in the United States called "Memories from the Coast". In February of 2007 he traveled to China and when he returned he held an exhibit of photographs from The People's Republic of China called "Life in China", in Alexandria, Virginia.
The same year he founded his studio, deloyartz photo, concentrating on food photography and restaurants, but his real passion is travel photography. Pablo travels every year to different countries in the world to try to capture with his camera the essence, the culture and the color of the people and the land. Today Pablo has permanent exhibits in Washington DC.
