Last week I spent a few days in Paris, just the time to discover exciting creative delights that I will share with you all along this week. Let’s begin with the work of American photographer ALESSANDRA SANGUINETTI presented at Le Bal (a space dedicated to photography) during the group show “Five Strange Family Albums”.

In 1999, ALESSANDRA began working on a series of photographs which captures the story of two young cousins named GUILLE and BELINDA, then nine and ten years old and living in a rural province of Buenos Aires. She followed the cousins for more than ten years constructing images fueled by their dreams, fantasies, and fears that belong to the psychological and physical transition from childhood to adulthood.

This work is far more than straight documentary. To witness the evolving relationship between Guille and Belinda is to be privy to a touching, entertaining and utterly captivating interaction. At the same time there is the subtle awareness of a second relationship, that of this delightful pair and their photographer.

This series will be shown from May 13rd to June 11th 2011 at Flux Laboratory in Geneva. And good news, the book “The adventures of Guille and Belinda and the enigmatic meaning of their dreams” is now available in the WFW Store.
