What Makes Me Choose Chengdu?

Authors: Go Chengdu


Dalmiro Quiroga, from Argentina and a famous musician and photographer in Hollywood, has good reasons for his repeated “comeback” to Chengdu.
With the spirit for adventures, Dalmiro Quiroga has made several changes in his lifetime and always on the way to try different lifestyles in different cities.
He went alone to the US just over 20 years old to pursue his music dream, and later became a famous photographer before he settled down in Los Angeles. Then, in 2017, he moved to Chengdu "at a sudden whim" and stayed for nearly one year in the city, which he just had visited once before that.
And now the wanderlust photographer has come back to Chengdu again, as a special guest for Fine Art Photography and Chengdu in Black & White activity.
Dalmiro is an observer and story-teller through his lenses. His photographic works feature the artistic integration of documentary and news photographing, mostly in the colors of white, black and light gray, focusing on the idiosyncratic and emotional expressions of people's lives, including the celebrities such as comic creator Stan Lee, singer and song writer Lana del Rey, musician Adam Levine and super model Noami Campbell.
"People love celebrities, but I don't. It is the reality of life instead," Dalmiro explained that most of his photos are taken in natural light to make sure that everything looks like what they really are.
During his stay in Chengdu in the year of 2017, he shot a series of of photos with the theme of "Chengdu Impression". With his strong personal styles, he has shown us unique perspectives of the life in Chengdu ― one of the pictures shows a young man standing alone with a backpack, watching the high-rises in the distance. "I tried to capture the moment when he was facing up the changes of the city's landscape and ... what he might have thought about," he said.
And the rapid development of Chengdu also impresses the photographer, too.
"Every time I come back, I find so many new things. I can feel a vitality of the city. It has been the inspiration for creative work of people like me, and an encouragement for the younger generations to create a brighter future."
