Archipelago (2004–2014) focusses on the contradictions of human relationships across countries, generations, and genders. Yolanda del Amo explores how our longing for closeness coexists with our desire for individuality. The relationship between the people in her images defines itself through the setting that conversely becomes a psychological extension of the characters. Archipelago raises questions about class, gender, intimacy, and the social connectivity of our times. Yolanda del Amo draws inspiration from real life by working with sitters who are her friends or family and adds a theatrical dimension through her directorial approach, resulting in a fusion of reality and fiction.
