Valentina Quintano: selected for One Planet Living Fotodocument commission

Ten photographers have been selected to visually document One Planet Living in our home city. Photoworks are partnering FotoDocument and BioRegional to commission ten public space photo essays, launching during Brighton Photo Biennial 2014 and remaining in situ for ten months.

“My reportage is shot in an unobtrusive way, giving my interpretation of candid moments, mostly with available lighting. I shoot in colour and my visual style tends to be raw, though emotional and poetic.”
Valentina Quintano is an Italian freelance photographer based in London. She has been working since 2007 when she was the staff photographer of a regional magazine focused on social affairs. She works mostly within the editorial market but also with performance photography, events, portraiture, news. Her personal reportage projects try to investigate the different aspects of human nature and ‘being human’ with an intimate, curious and open-minded approach. She attended an International Semester of Photojournalism at the Danish School of Media and Journalism in 2009 and graduated with distinction from London College of Communication, MA Photojournalism and Documentary Photography in 2010. Her images have been published in various magazines and newspapers, including: The British Journal of Photography, Sunday Times Magazine, L’Espresso, Ojodepez, Psychologies Magazine UK, ilReportage, Vice, TimeOut London, La Repubblica, Left, Il Giornalista. Her work has been also featured in four books and various exhibitions in the UK, Italy and Canada. Her work has been awarded and selected finalist in international competitions such as the Ian Parry Scholarship, the Magenta Flash Forward 2013, the Lucie Foundation Scholarship and Ojodepez. She has also been artist in residence at R.E.D. in Norway and Trasparesidenze in Italy.
