    Sanguinetti began her stay in France in Calais, the main seaport for anyone coming from the USA, and then traveled the country by bus, by train, or by car, from Calais to Marseille, before completing her residency in Paris. Sanguinetti explores a France in which traditions are being played out in a variety of ways as the culture begins to shift in relation to migration, growing contrasts between isolated rural communities and the more cosmopolitan cities, alongside other contemporary stresses. Rather than a documentary approach, Sanguinetti’s photographs offer an intuitive, lyrical journey that engages with the classic cultural tropes of France, as well as with the fairytales that persist and help define what it means to be French, even today.
