Spotlight
In this issue’s Spotlight section, we bring you the story behind one of the selected collections from Community Curation Season 05: The Adventures of Guille and Belinda, by Alessandra Sanguinetti.
Belinda and Rosita, by Alessandra Sanguinetti
Belinda and Rosita, by Alessandra Sanguinetti
Alessandra Sanguinetti is an American photographer, born in New York in 1968 and brought up in Argentina, where she lived from 1970 until 2003.
In 1996 she began working on a series eventually titled On the Sixth Day, which explored the complex relationship between man and domesticated animals in the countryside in Argentina. Three years into this project, she turned her attention to two nine-year-old cousins, Belinda and Guille, whose grandmother’s farm had been the subject of Sixth Day.
Since then, Sanguinetti has regularly photographed the lives of the two cousins, for more than two decades, embarking on a life-long journey with Guille and Belinda. Through this project, we can go along the lives of the girls as they move through childhood and youth toward womanhood, and not only the evolution of the relationship between themselves, but also between Photographer and Subjects.
By depicting the lives of women and girls within the conventionally masculine world of Argentinian gauchos and farmers, Sanguinetti’s work interrogates the frameworks of mythologies of all kinds, honoring lives that are usually unseen.
RAW DAO is pleased to announce that Belinda and Rosita is now part of our ever-growing collection.
