This book presents Alessandra Sanguinetti's return to rural Argentina to continue her intimate collaboration with Belinda and Guillermina, two cousins who, as children, were the subject of the first book in her ongoing series, The Adventures of Guille and Belinda and the enigmatic meaning of your dreams.
In this second volume, The Illusion of an Eternal Summer, we follow Guillermina and Belinda from ages 14 to 24 as they negotiate the fluid territory between adolescence and youth. Still surrounded by the animals and rural settings of her childhood, Eternal Summer depicts the daily lives of the two cousins as they experience young love, pregnancy, and motherhood, all of which, perhaps inevitably, result in increasing independence. of their families and of the other. In the same way, we can perceive a change in Sanguinetti's relationship with her cousins and the work they do: from insular childhood collaborators to three women with lives that branch out in different directions. Although the passage of time is one of the most palpable tensions in these photographs, An Eternal Summer deepens Sanguinetti's exploration of the universal and timeless language of intimacy and female friendship.
