Irina Werning – Back to the Future

4 Jul

Irina Werning is an photographer from Argentina who works with the project “Back the Future” where she takes pictures of people in the same position as in an old photo from their where kids. She sais herself about the project; “I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… A few months ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future.

Congrats Alejandro Chaskielberg!

10 May

-The Hunter-

An Argentinian photographer who began his career on local papers last night picked up one of his art form’s leading awards for a portfolio of pictures he took while living with islanders in the Paraná river delta, Argentina.

Alejandro Chaskielberg’s dramatically luminous images of a community going about their daily lives won him photographer of the year – known as L’Iris D’Or – at the Sony World Photography Awards, presented last night at a gala ceremony at the Odeon Leicester Square in London.

Chaskielberg, 34, spent two years with the islanders, immersing himself in their daily lives and taking photographs of precisely staged scenes at night. The chairman of this year’s judges, critic Francis Hodgson, said of Chaskielberg’s High Tide series: “These carefully directed pictures tell solid truths – about toil and community and marginal survival – in a splendidly allusive way.”

Buenos Aires-born Chaskielberg, who took his first job on a local newspaper aged 18, said of the project: “Using photography, I have been able to present another version of the Paraná river delta and its community that has been photographically ignored throughout the years.” (…)

He beat considerable competition, with 105,000 images entered from 162 countries.
