Dalmiro Quiroga, Photographer
CURRENTLY: LOS ANGELES
Dalmiro Quiroga’s passion for music and photography allowed him to develop a unique style of documenting the indie-rock movement of Hollywood, mixing photojournalism with LA’s typical street style. Currently, he is the official photographer at Taschen Beverly Hills.
Living in the US since 2000, he moved from Miami to Los Angeles in 2006 to expand his career where the rock movement had its birth. He has photographed international bands and personalities that include Moby, Kiss, Pedro Almodovar, Naomi Campbell, Adam Levine, Lana del Rey, Norman Reedus, Chris Owens, The Wombats, as well as the most eccentric characters you can find in LA’s streets.
Dalmiro attended Michael Going’s workshops at Barnsdall Art Center in 2010 and studied lighting at Idep–Barcelona in 2013. His works have been published by LA Times, Taschen.com and The Huffington Post. He also has exhibited in Buenos Aires, New York and London. Dalmiro’s eagerness to learn about different cultures and new artistic expressions, his admiration for other photographers past and present, and the constant search for inspiration, guide his numerous travels around the world. His next stop, after a prolonged stay to work in new projects in Europe, is East Asia.
Dalmiro photographed the Buenos Aires collection.
MOTTO: “My journey is like a dream, you never wanna wake up”.
