  • Catalogue Essay

    While working as a photojournalist in the 1980s, Adriana Lestido became fascinated by the theme of emotional and affective ties. For the series Mujeres presas (1991-93), she captured intimate moments in her portraits of imprisoned women. In 1995, she was the first Argentinian photographer to be awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship. Her work has been exhibited in many institutions worldwide, including Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Buenos Aires; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and Hasselblad Center, Gothenburg. Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain in Paris holds another early print of this image, which is smaller in size.
