Igor Chekachkov, b. 1989 in Kharkiv, Ukraine

Started as a photojournalist in 2008, Igor Chekachkov covered a wide range of cultural, mass and sports events. This experience led the author to the field of art photography which he still explores these days. The boundaries between public and intimate spaces, as well as modern digital algorithms and their influence on the image are the main focus for the author today.

His work has been published in Forbes, National Geographic, The Guardian (UK), Le Monde (France), WirtschaftsWoche (Germany), Forbes (Ukraine) and others. He also continues to exhibit his prints internationally in both solo and group exhibitions, including work in the Quatrième Image, Paris (2014), Galerie Claude Samuel, Paris (2015), Ukrainian Museum, New York (2015), Ukrainian Cultural Center, Los Angeles (2015), Odessa // Batumi festival (2017) and many others.
Member of UPHA (Ukrainian Photographic Alternative) and UAPF (Ukrainian Association of Professional Photographers) group, National Society of Photo Artists of Ukraine.
