Women In Photography: Alessandra Sanguinetti

The new Women In Photography showcase is now up and features new work from Alessandra Sanguinetti's project The Life That Came. A continuation of The Adventures of Guille and Belinda and the Enigmatic Meaning of their Dreams, the images from this series revisit Guillermina and Belinda as they grow up on their family's farm outside Buenos Aires. In the press release for Sanguinetti's current exhibition at Yossi Milo, it states:

"Sanguinetti has collaborated with the girls since 1999, capturing images inspired by the expectations, fantasies, and fears that accompany the psychological and physical transition from childhood to adulthood.

This sequel to the gallery’s exhibition of the series in 2004 carries the project forward to a new period in the lives of Guille and Belinda as they enter the adult world they once imagined. The fantastical tableaux of personal dreams and lively imagination of the early images give way to more meditative moments as the two cousins shape their own realities, encounter the fragility of changing relationships, and confront early motherhood."
