The New York Photo Festival and Awards 2011
Main exhibitions : Photography Now : engaged, personal, and vital - Curated by Enrico Bossan & Elisabeth Biondi.
Hope: Between Dream and Reality - Curated by Enrico Bossan.
« Hope is the emotion that reveals an urgency of life. Just like a child’s eye staring at the world, hope encompasses the desire to live, look to the future and, crucially, change the world around us.
I have chosen a group of young photographers who neither provide a faithful representation of reality nor create an illusion, but who have impressed me with their ability to capture the essential aspects of life. These photos show the role photography can play as a witness. Photography may portray the world at its bleakest but we must remember to be positive towards the future and the opportunities that lie ahead.

Alejandro Chaskielberg - High Tide, at Michael Hoppen
Michael Hoppen Contemporary is delighted to announce HIGH TIDE, an exhibition of new work by Argentinean photographer Alejandro Chaskielberg, overall winner of this year's Sony World Photo Awards. HIGH TIDE is a series of colour photographs taken in the remote Paraná River Delta, Argentina, where Chaskielberg lived and worked from 2007 - 2010. His subjects are local residents of this isolated community who rely on the river for food, work, travel and communication with the wider world. His portraits are ethereal, dreamlike images that convey the everyday life of those photographed - lumberjacks shifting heavy timber, an aged hunter sitting by an open fire in contemplation, lovers walking under the stars.
Working at night under a full moon, Chaskielberg documents the relationship between the inhabitants ...
