Alessandra Sanguinetti: Virtual Gallery at ArteEast
Remarkable photos from Palestine by renowned New York photographer Alessandra Sanguinetti, from ArteEast. Accompanied by a very smart essay from Lori Allen, who argues that Sanguinetti captures a “tragic magical realism” in Palestine and does not replace the liminal uncertainty there with “message, hope, symbolism or sentiment.” The photo above shows two Palestinian schoolgirls in front of the separation barrier (apartheid wall) at Qalqilya.
