Welcome to

the photographic art

of Lalo Fiorelli.

Images appearing on this site are from my personal work. They were not part of any project I was involved in, and are a reflection of how I "see". For the most part, they have not been published in any other forum.

My new book- "Splendors of Light, The Colorado Plateau, is a photo essay from this area roughly centered on the four corners area of the west,including images from the great National Parks, as well as other locations. Monument Valley plays an important part of this book. "Splendors of Light" was published in december of 2011, and was just released [feb 2012]. A preview of some of the images that appear in the book are presented here. Not all of the Colorado Plateau images shown on this site, were chosen for the book.

"Secret Splendors of the Desert" was published in 2008 and is sold out. It is a photographic essay of Anza Borrego Desert State Park. It was a sell out success.

"Hidden Splendors of the Yucatan " is a book based on images made during the eight years I worked in the subaquatic caves of Mexico's Yucatan peninsula. " It was published on November 2004. It was sold through the National Museum of Natural History of the Smithsonian. It is sold out

All the images were made in camera in a single piece of film, or digital capture. The film images are shown here represent, a close as possible, what my mind's eye remembers them looking like while I was in the field making them. In the few instances where they have been digitally manipulated, beyond what could be done in a "wet" darkroom,it is stated in the caption. Or it is quite obvious that they have been used in the creation of digital art pieces.
