    Annemarie Heinrich is one of the photographers that represent modern photography in Argentina. She is well-known for her portraits of local and foreign actors, singers and dancers. She co-founded the artistic group La Carpeta de los Diez (The Folder of the Ten) in 1953.
    Born in Darmstadt, the German photographer Annemarie Heinrich arrived in Argentina in 1926, at the age of 14. She received a camera from her uncle and taught herself to take photos. From Entre Ríos, where they first settled, the Heinrich family moved to Villa Ballester, on the outskirts of Buenos Aires. Once established in the city, Annemarie Heinrich began to get to know the local artistic community. She was apprenticed by the Hungarians Rosa Kardofy, Rita Branger and Nicholas Shönfeld, the Australian Melita Lange and the Pole Sivul Wilensky. She probably met well-known actors, singers and dancers through the Argentinian filmmaker Luis Saslavsky. This led to an intense work schedule in photographic portraits, which became very well known within the milieu. Indeed, in the 1940s, she established a photography studio for actors, dancers and intellectuals on Avenida Callao 1475, which is still in operation and now run by her children, Alicia and Ricardo Sanguinetti.
    Annemarie Heinrich was a central member of La Carpeta de los Diez (The Folder of the Ten), an artistic group dedicated to advancing modern photography, active between 1953 and 1959. This cosmopolitan group brought together photographers from different backgrounds and geographies: Pinélides Aristóbulo Fusco, Eduardo Colombo, Augusto Valmitjana, Hans Mann, Max Jacoby, Giuseppe Malandrino, Juan Di Sandro, Georges Friedmann, Alex Klein, Ilse Mayer, Anatole Saderman, Fred S. Schiffer, Boleslaw Senderowicz.
