TOKYO, Jan. 5/KYODO JBN/–

Ricoh Co., Ltd. is pleased to announce the opening of Alejandro Chaskielberg’s exhibition "High Tide" on Wednesday, January 18, 2012, at the Ricoh Photo Gallery RING CUBE in Ginza, Tokyo.

This event will be the first solo exhibition by Mr. Chaskielberg in Japan, and is a byproduct of collaboration between RING CUBE and the world-famous London gallery Michael Hoppen Contemporary*.

The photographs in "High Tide" were taken around the delta region of rio Parana in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Works in the exhibition include highly innovative techniques such as long exposure under the full moon or artificial light with a model standing still for up to 10 minutes. The beautifully made photographs highlight the lifestyles of the people living at the waterside and will be sure to provide a new and exciting experience for all attendees. The exhibition includes 28 works.
