Adriana Lestido (born 1955) is an Argentine photographer. Her black-and-white photographs document the often difficult place of women in society. Adriana Lestido studied photography at the Institute of Photographic Art and Audiovisual Techniques in Avellaneda. From 1980 to 1995, she worked as a photojournalist for newspapers La Voz del Interior and Página/12, and the agency DyN. Photography is a tool that allows her to understand the mystery of human relationships. The basic emotions give meaning to her black and white photographs of teenage mothers, women prisoners, mother-daughter relationships, and love through abstract and misty landscapes.
