PARIS.- In 1999, Alessandra Sanguinetti began working on a series of photographs which register the saga of two young cousins named Guille and Belinda, then nine and ten years old.

Cultivating an intimate relationship with the pair over the past five years, Sanguinetti collaborates with the girls to construct images fueled by the dreams, fantasies, and fears that accompany the psychological and physical transition from childhood to adulthood.

Sanguinetti’s photographs include both staged theatrical constructions and spontaneous recreations of childhood fantasies. With the Argentinean countryside as their backdrop, Guille and Belinda use costumes, props, and their imaginations to produce visual tableaux imbued with references to art and literature that explore the diffuse boundary between fantasy and reality.

The Life that Came is the continuation of The Adventures of Guille and Belinda and the Enigmatic Meaning of their Dreams, an ongoing series of photographs following the lives of the young cousins Guillermina and Belinda as they grow up on their family’s farm outside Buenos Aires.

Cultivating an intimate relationship with the pair, Ms. Sanguinetti has collaborated with the girls since 1999, capturing images inspired by the expectations, fantasies, and fears that accompany the psychological and physical transition from childhood to adulthood.

This sequel to the gallery’s exhibition of the series in 2004 carries the project forward to a new period in the lives of Guille and Belinda as they enter the adult world they once imagined. The fantastical tableaux of personal dreams and lively imagination of the early images give way to more meditative moments as the two cousins shape their own realities, encounter the fragility of changing relationships, and confront early motherhood.

Alessandra Sanguinetti was born in New York City in 1968 and currently lives and works in both Buenos Aires and San Francisco. Her work has been exhibited extensively abroad, including a solo show at the Museum of Modern Art, Buenos Aires, and is part of several collections including the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the International Center of Photography, New York. She has been awarded numerous grants and prizes, including the Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, Hasselblad Foundation Grant, and Rencontres d’Arles Discovery Award.

The series The Adventures of Guille and Belinda and the Enigmatic Meaning of their Dreams was published in 2010 by Nazraeli Press.
