This is a story about Guillermina and Belinda. They are cousins, and live in the farmlands of Argentina, 300 km from Buenos Aires. I met them when they were 4 years old while I was working on "On the sixth day", at their grandmothers' place.I begun to photograph them in 1999 when they were around 9 years old.Now they are 18.
