About Alexander

Alexander Kargaltsev is an artist, writer, photographer, actor and film director. In this last capacity he won many prizes including his short movies, The Cell (2010) and The Well (2009), both made when the Moscow-born author held a scholarship at the All-Russian State University of Cinematography, the home of most of the greats of Russian film since Tarkovsky, Eisenstein and before. Photography has been a passion since his boyhood and he has built up a remarkable body of work since that time. Kargaltsev’s range has even expanded since he won a schoarship in New York Film Academy and moved to New York City in 2010. Kargaltsev is young enough to bring out images from childhood, from fantasy, with an innate and refreshing vigour, but stamped with a maturity of utterance and presentation which is truly innovative and remarkable.
