is an Argentinian photographer. He was born in 1978 in Buenos Aires where he studied at the National School of Photography until 2001. After spending a few years in London he moved to Berlin where he’s been living and working for the past three years. His mother is a poet and this lyrical atmosphere is recurrent in his work. He photographs everything: the ugly and the beautiful, streets and still life. There is no visual hierarchy in his work, everybody gets the same treatment. Among Quintero’s theoretical and aesthetical influences are visual artists like Dash Snow, Juergen Teller, Nan Goldin, Nobuyoshi Araki, Wolfang Tillmans, and film makers David Lynch and Jean Luc Godard.
