5.0 Alejandro Chaskielberg’s series The High Tide depicts life of the islanders in the Paraná Delta River, “where the river tides determine the activities and movements of its inhabitants.” A long, 6-minute exposure allows him to capture the moonlit background, while he uses LED flashlights to selectively illuminate his subjects.
