Fábio Del Re has been surrounded by photography since childhood. His father’s photographs, albums, and cameras were his constant companions. At the age of twenty, he moved to Boston and studied at the New England School of Photography, where he received honors for his work in black and white. Returning to Brazil, Del Re documented craftspeople and craftwork in places all over the country for many years. He has used photography for the reproduction of artworks and is admired for his command of analog printing.
His photographs have been shown in solo exhibitions in Brazil including Decomposition, Photo Galería, Porto Alegre (2002); Gavetas e outros eclipses, Fundação Cultural de Criciúma (2003); Morandi, Espaço Cultural, Escola Superior de Propaganda e Marketing [ESPM], Porto Alegre (2015) and Canela Workshops (2016). Since 2001, his work has been shown in several group shows in Brazil both as an individual and as a member of the photography collective Baita Professional. He was recently named Artist of the Year at the tenth Açorianos de Artes Plásticas Awards, Porto Alegre, for Morandi at ESPM, which was also selected as one of the best individual exhibitions of the year.
