Joaquín García Cuesta fue uno de los primeros fotógrafos asturianos dedicados al paisaje y a la denominada «fotografía turística». García Cuesta fotografió la montaña y el medio rural, sobre todo del centro y oriente de Asturias, de donde era él, nacido en Cangas de Onís, y su mujer, que era de Carrandi (Colunga), en las faldas de la sierra del Sueve. Gijón y su concejo también fueron el centro de sus intereses. Fotografió las calles de la ciudad de Gijón, sus plazas, el Muro, la playa, el puerto, de día y de noche, y también desde la distancia, buscando vistas generales de la ciudad desde las montañas próximas. Por último, también realizó fotografías artísticas, especialmente bodegones
