In 1996, Sanguinetti began working on a project titled The Sixth Day, exploring life and death on a farm in the Pampas, just outside Buenos Aires. While photographing there she met two cousins, Guille and Belinda, who she started to photograph in what was to become a 23 year project: The Adventures of Guille and Belinda.
