Stare. It is the way to educate your eye, and more. Stare, pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You are not here long. -- Walker Evans

Alejandro Chaskielberg

Alejandro Chaskielberg was born in 1977 in Bueno Aires, Argentina, where he lives. He graduated from Argentina's National Film and Audiovisual Art Institute, ENERC. In 2006, with work experience including photojournalism and direction of television documentaries, he started exhibiting his personal photographic projects.

He has won numerous awards, including the 2011 L'Iris d'Or at the Sony World Photography Awards, for an essay entitled High Tide, consisting of large-format night-time photos of Panamanian islanders living on the Parana River Delta, with whom he lived for two years. The award-winning essay is discussed in an article in the British Journal of Photography and in the video below, which was shot at the Brighton Photo Biennial.

His website contains several portfolios, but not a lot of documentation.
