Synopsis: Norma I. Quintana (born 1954) is an American photographer and educator working in the tradition of social documentary, shooting exclusively in black and white and using only available light. Her first monograph presents a decade-long pictorial series of a traveling one-ring circus.

About the Author: Essentially self-taught, Quintana has studied with some of the world'smost important and influential photographers, such as Mary Ellen Mark,Shelby Lee Adams, and Graciela Iturbide from Mexico.Quintana works solely in black-and-white and uses only available light.She creates dark, rich, masterful photographs with an ageless, classicpurity. Collaboration is essential to her process. The images, Quintanainsists, would not be possible without her subjects' willingness to revealthemselves.
