Alejandro Chaskielberg was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and studied cinematography at the National Film Institute of Argentina.
He began his career as a photojournalist for local newspapers and magazines, but soon realized the creative limitations of mainstream media.
His work has been exhibited since 2006 and he has won numerous awards, including the Curriculum Cero Award, one of the most prestigious awards for young artists in Argentina, BURN magazine’s Emerging Photographer Grant, and the Leopold Godowsky Jr. Award.
Chaskielberg participated in National Geographic All Roads photography program and recently he was named one of PDN magazine’s 30 New and Emerging Photographers to Watch.
"There is a kind of hyperreal quality to Alejandro Chaskielberg's photographs. They have a wonderful spatial, resonance that I find to be slightly dislocating."
