Adriana Lestido can only think of photography as a companion of life, going hand in hand with her societal criticisms and her role of being a woman in a “machista” country. At a slow pace, she organizes her projects to pose deep questions to her surroundings.
Whether it’s the condition of women in prison or the relationship between a mother and a daughter, her interrogations of daily life reveal reality and charge photography as an instrument of analysis.
In black and white and a real humility for her subjects, she believes in the necessity of a documentary photography rooted in the present. Driven to develop analyses with a social dimension, she ponders the state of the global world through these issues. With a rare visual simplicity, she states the wounds and difficulties of a universe broken down by her attentive and peaceful pace.
