Them, You, Us
Curator: Ana Berruguete
This exhibition proposes a survey of over thirty years of work by Adriana Lestido (Buenos Aires, 1955). The selection of pieces focuses on woman and includes principal topics that she has explored throughout her career, such as, love, solitude, and maternity. The artists uses photography to document the intimacy of the people she portrays from a social perspective. Separation and absence are key themes throughout her work. Beyond reality, Adriana Lestido portrays emotions. Her first photographic essays are still clearly influenced by photojournalism as a social testimony following the tradition of documentary photography. Later her images become and more subjective and incorporate landscapes that she depicts as reflections of internal emotional states.
