The Literoom is really incredibly excited and honored to welcome Buenos Aires local Alejandro Chaskielberg to this platform we call home.
Alejandro Chaskielberg (Buenos Aires, 1977) is an independent photographer, videographer and teacher, commissioned and exhibited globally. He is a graduate of the National Institute of Cinematography of Argentina as Director of Photography.
Alejandro was named World Photographer of the Year 2011 by the World Photography Organization. He received the BURN Emerging Photographer Grant from the Magnum Foundation and the Leopold Godowsky Jr. Award from the Boston University, which recognizes excellence in the field of contemporary colour photography. Alejandro won the All Roads Award from the National Geographic Society and the Best Latin-American Portrait at the 2010 US Pictures of the Year International Awards. He also received the SCAN - Talent Latent Award and won the Fifth RM Iberoamerican Photobook Competition with his latest project. In 2016 he was a Juror’s Pick at the Magnum 70th Anniversary Awards, selected by Magnum Photos President, Martin Parr.
After having met several times in Buenos Aires and working on some pretty big projects together, it is a huge honour to welcome Gaston to the Literoom. Not only does he posess his own natural and authentic style, he is also an incredibly charming and genuinly nice person. Something that, funnily enough, seems to be a common denominator amongst the Literoom artists.
Gaston Perello is an Argentine artist. He was born in the city of Rosario, Sante Fe in 1979.
He began his career working as an art merchant. At the beginning of the new millenium, he moved to LA where he began his artistic career studying film. Upon returning to his native Argentina he started working as an art director for advertising and TV.
Since then, Gaston has been heavily involved in fashion photography, later specializing in architecture, advertising and art. You can find his work in international media such as Vogue, GQ and Elle amongst many others.
Early 2018 we were asked whether we'd like to collaborate with huge Swiss Interior Retailer, Interio. Seeing as this is quite a pivot to our natural habitat, we went off to discuss this with our artists who were equally as excited as we were. Now you'll find 5 LTRM artists Clare Kenny, Lea Meienberg, Roman Klonek, Ashkan Sanei and Nikolai Hodel with a total of 15 pieces available via the physical Interio stores (11 across Switzerland) and via the Interio website - to be found here. We are obviously incredibly excited about this collaboration and urge you to go and check it out!

We hope you enjoy >>>
