6th Day


On the sixth day is the title of a book of photographs.
On the sixth day, as recounted in the Bible, God created the creatures of the earth, and man named them. Brilliantly titled in reference to that day, these pictures explore the complex relationship between man and domesticated animals. These are not animals endowed with human qualities; they are someone’s livelihood, their means of survival. Alessandra Sanguinetti skillfully portrays the lives and deaths of domesticated animals as both a practical and ritual part of human existence. Sanguinetti took these pictures in her native Argentina.
