Grant Recipient of the Emerging Photographer Fund 2021
“Sin Hombre” By Cristina Vatielli
Sin Hombre is a free reconstruction of a love that is as sincere as it is impossible between two women who lived in Galicia in the late 1800s. Elisa Sanchéz Lorica and Marcela Garcìa Ibeas were forced to conceal their relationship within the four walls of their home. One dressed as and thought to be a man. The first two women in a romantic relationship married in 1901 by the church. Successfully deceiving the whole country.
Cristina Vatielli’s body of work will be published on BURN on December 21, 2021.
The Emerging Photographer Fund was created in 2008. EPF 2021 is curated and produced by Alejandra Martinez Moreno.
