"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."

Interesting mood he's created, through lighting & perspective. I like them.

the collage....is limitless......

ethereal

awesome!! spooky, twilight zone. great job!

Wow, just... Wow.... :)

to me it looks like he used Long exposure for the pictures. If you keep your models still enough or use quick bursts of light you can get similar results, but it is so hard to predict how the shot will turn out, and each one takes a couple minutes to process before you see the picture. it is absolutely incredible that he achieved these results.

These are fantastic. Fun lighting effects. Almost dream-like

This is fenominal.

I think she is hiding...the second one looks like those people are looking. I love the color contrast in the first one. Her shirt/Grass

Ehh... It's a little too abstract for me. The lighting is unique. It reminds me of the Romantic period.
