Statement from Alessandra Sanguinetti on the back of print “Enchanting the pig. Buenos Aires, Argentina. 1999.”
“As a child, I remember closing my eyes shut tightly,and fervently wishing for things to happen or appear before me. Of course, disappointment would set in when I opened them.
I know better now. I wish willful ignorance, racism and injustice would disappear overnight, but it’s a long process and I’m still learning how to be a part of that change.”
Alessandra Sanguinetti is known for her lyrical, softly-drawn photography that explores themes of memory, place, and the psychological transitions of youth.
Sanguinetti was born in New York in 1968, and brought up in Argentina where she lived from 1970 until 2003. Her interest in photography began aged 9 when she poured over her mother’s collection of books by Michael Lesy, Dorothea Lange and others. She studied Anthropology at the University of Buenos Aires and General Studies at the International Center of Photography.
