“Selling anticuchos wasn’t his dream, so after trying different jobs and getting fired a few times, Guido started as an assistant cutter in a textile shop.” The paragraph is located somewhere down the middle of a splendid profile of Guido Fuentes (Tarija, Bolivia, 1974) that was published on the website of the Bolivian Consulate in Rosario. That piece of information also lies around the middle of Guido Fuentes’ actual life. If not right in the middle, it’s nevertheless the fact that splits it in two: from that point on, Fuentes worked in the fashion world and founded his own company Guido Models, a school/model agency in Buenos Aires’ shanty town Villa 31. Directed by the Argentine photographer Julieta Sans, Guido Models is also a splendid portrait, maybe not as sweetened as the other one but certainly more sour, and definitely more poignant: the director follows Guido and his models from a fair distance, which allows her to see how well the magician and princesses work in close-up. But when the shot gets wider, an arid reality gets in the frame –one that has to be dealt with and might be the key to this small epic story. MP
