An Image A Week: Alessandra Sanguinetti
Alessandra Sanguinetti's series The Adventures Of Guille and Belinda and the Enigmatic Meaning Of Their Dreams is a psychological look at the transformations and explorations of childhood. As Sanguinetti herself has stated:
"I have attempted to interpret the ending of their childhood by entering their imaginary paces. The time when their dreams, fantasies, and fears fuse seamlessly with real day-to-day life are ending, and the photographs I have made intend to crystalize this rapidly disappearing very personal and free space."
Sanguinetti has captured the playful abandon of childhood, while not overlooking the inherent insecurities and questioning that accompany it. She met her subjects while photographing On The Sixth Day, a meditation on the relationship of farmers, their animals and the land.
