Ricoh Co., Ltd. is pleased to announce the opening of Alejandro Chaskielberg's
exhibition "High Tide" on Wednesday, January 18, 2012, at the Ricoh Photo
Gallery RING CUBE in Ginza, Tokyo.
This event will be the first solo exhibition by Mr. Chaskielberg in Japan, and
is a byproduct of collaboration between RING CUBE and the world-famous London
gallery Michael Hoppen Contemporary*.
The photographs in "High Tide" were taken around the delta region of rio Parana
in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Works in the exhibition include highly innovative
techniques such as long exposure under the full moon or artificial light with a
model standing still for up to 10 minutes. The beautifully made photographs
highlight the lifestyles of the people living at the waterside and will be sure
to provide a new and exciting experience for all attendees. The exhibition
includes 28 works.
Alejandro Chaskielberg was born in Buenos Aires in 1977. In 2011, he received
the "2011 Sony World Photography Awards Photographer of the Year" and "POYi
(Pictures of the Year International) -- Latin America" as the best Latin
American portrait. He represents one of the new young photographers garnering
attention worldwide based on the success of his exhibitions at the Yossi Milo
Gallery in New York and the Michael Hoppen Gallery in London.
