Description

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.

This photograph, “Ophelias”, was taken in 2001, early on in the Adventures project, during a period when the two girls were working out who they would become. “I’d photograph them at play,” she has said, “and I started asking them to imagine what their future would be like – and then they’d act it out, like stars of their own life,” Sanguinetti explains.
