I first saw Alessandra Sanguinetti's images in Lightwork's Contact Sheet magazine issue 120 back in January 2003. Every since then I've read and followed her career. I am drawn to her work because her photographs carry an emotional sensitivity-- something that I rarely come across when I look at contemporary work. She joined Magnum as a nominee in 2007 and just last week, PDN News reported that she won $50,000 grant from Robert Gardner Fellow in Photography given by the Peabody Museum of Archeology and Ethnolography at Harvard University. Also this month, she garnered a National Geographic Magazine grant for another $50, 000. Congratulations, Alessandra!
