From the author of the TERRA INCOGNITA Collection, Cielito Lindo is inspired in the master works of Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Weston, whose devotional respect for the spiritual resonances of form, light and the organization of space set new standards for straight Photography during XX Century. Together with Paul Strand, Walker Evans, Eugene Atget and Henri Cartier Bresson, they settled the status of unstaged, straightforward Photography as an autonomous art: in the case of Modernist Cartier Bresson, as the art of virtuous improvisation and transforming banal into poetry. Eventually, Cielito Lindo could be seen as photographic Minimalism, since all of the pictures were taken from the same place: a small balcony facing north at Salinero´s ninth floor home in La Plata (Buenos Aires, Argentina). Patience, perseverance and a deep concentration were the main resources to create the images, plus an inner confidence in the eternal generosity of heaven and clouds; which, in Stieglitz words, "are there for everyone". In any case, the big challenge is whether we dare to look up, face our cosmic origin and be sensible enough to hear the music of the spheres.

About the Author:

Photographer Andrés Salinero was born the 26 January 1963 in the city of La Plata, province of Buenos Aires capital district, Argentina. He began photographing at 8 thanks to his father Heraldo, an engineer and amateur photographer himself. Being 15 he traveled to Mexico, where he was deeply moved by this Country’s pre-Hispanic, native cultural heritage, and the old, little towns hanging from the central mountains, like Taxco. Influenced by that trip and other untransferable experiences (like Carlos Castaneda and Julio Cortázar readings), he noticed he had deeply felt in love with Documentary Photography -and travelling, of course. Salinero studied Journalism and Mass Communications, Anthropology, Philosophy and the History of Arts at the Universidad Nacional de La Plata, where he also worked as a photographer during ten years. After graduating, attending a course in Visual Anthropology and a brief interlude in New York, he returned to Argentina and began to freelance for Clarín Editorial Group in Buenos Aires, and for international magazines like National Geographic and Altaïr. In 2001 he won a World Press Prize in Photography, and associated with agencies and book editors from Buenos Aires as a photographer, writer and co-editor. After a personal crisis in 2010, he decided to quit working for other people projects and fully devoted to his own, Terra Incognita, which he had created during his teenage years. By these days, he is fully devoted to this long term project. Salinero is also the author of three experimental essays: «Reality», «Gulp!» and «Cielito Lindo». Besides Photography, Salinero likes free jazz, literature, paintwork, tennis, and international Rally races. Salinero still lives in the same city where he and his parents were born: La Plata. He thinks of himself as a “rioplatense” -a citizen of the river. Salinero is as a self-taught photographer.
