Alessandra Sanguinetti
Photographer

Alessandra Sanguinetti was born in New York in 1968, lived in Argentina from 1970 to 2003 and is currently based in New York. An ICP / International Center of Photography graduate, she began a series of works in 1999 about the relationship between two nine-year-old cousins, Belinda and Guille, who live on a farm outside of Buenos Aries. Sanguinetti photographed them for ten years, charting their evolution from girls to young women. The girls collaborated with Sanguinetti on the series, The Adventures of Guille and Belinda and the Enigmatic Meaning of their Dreams, to construct images that evoke the fantasies and fears that accompany the physical and psychological transition from childhood to adulthood. The photographs use costumes and props, as well as references to art and literature, to explore the diffuse boundary between fantasy and reality. As the girls age, the photographs become more meditative as they start exploring their adult lives.

Sanguinetti is a member of Magnum Photos, and her photographs are held in museums including the Museum of Modern Art; the Museum of Fine Arts Boston; the Museum of Fine Arts Houston; and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

    Publication
    Edition Taube
    International
    In Michael Radford’s first artists’ book, we see shattered supercar bodies – forming a dialogue between consumer accidents and human desire, questioning these objects and their role in enabling petrol masculinity. The seductive high-gloss compositions draw us in, seen through the lens of automotive sexiness and the capitalist ideological machine, cannoned by the image. (more…)
  • A Real Woman

    The Gallery / Artichoke
    Various Locations, UK
    “When approaching the subject ‘A Real Woman’, I felt it crucial that this was not a question to be answered, but rather a statement to be considered. There is no single or simple definition of a woman. I hope the different perspectives presented by our artists will inspire viewers to consider the plurality of the womanhood, and thereby encourage understanding and empathy towards those whose lives are shaped differently from their own.

    According to Arnold Gehlen, one of the fathers of Western anthropology, man comes into the world incomplete and imperfect, incapable of surviving in nature due to his multiple limitations.
