Adriana Lestido, ‘Amalia y su Hija from Mujeres presas’, 1991-1993, Phillips

Property from a Private Collection, France

From the Catalogue:
While working as a photojournalist in the 1980s, Adriana Lestido became fascinated by the theme of emotional and affective ties. She attributes her ability to capture fragile moments in her portraits to her impoverished upbringing. She was the first Argentine photographer to be awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1995. In 2007 she ran photography workshops in Ezeiza women’s prison. Her work has been exhibited globally, including the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes; Argentina; the Museum of Fine Arts; Houston; and the Hasselblad Center, Gothenburg.
