Review: Alejandro Chaskielberg at Milo Gallery

Through July 29

Argentinian photographer Alejandro Chaskielberg makes his US debut at Milo Gallery with works that are both direct and fantastic. Chaskielberg has lived and worked in the ParanĂ¡ River Delta region in Argentina on and off for four years and has taken influence from the relationship between the people and their environment.

The large scale images are dynamic and edge on dream-like. The artist observes his subjects, fishermen, farmers, loggers, and hunters among them, at work in daylight, but returns to photograph them under the cover of night. Using strobes, flashlights, lanterns, even ambient moonlight to illuminate the scenes, the figures and landscape appear charged. Bursting with power, brawn, and bravery the workers are heroicized. The settings too appear supernatural. Training in cinematography has been an obvious and interesting influence on the photographic work of this promising artist.
