Her research focuses on the history of photography and aesthetic practices relating to photographs as objects and images. She is an Associate Researcher at the Gino Germani Research Institute of the University of Buenos Aires. Her doctoral thesis, which she did as a CONICET fellow, reconstructs many aspects on “La Carpeta de los Diez”; a group of European photographers based in Buenos Aires during the 1950s, in particular how the group collaborated in the construction of a local and Latin American photographic modernity. Pestarino's studies were supported by scholarships from AUGM (Brazil, 2012), Erasmus+ (Czech Republic, 2018), Casa de Velázquez (Spain, 2019), and the Italian-Latin American Institute (Italy, 2019), among others. She was a Graduate Intern 2021-2022 in the Curatorial Department (Latin American Art) of the Getty Research Institute (USA) and was part of the Bauhaus Lab Global Modernism Studies 2023 (Germany). Her book Modern Practices. Photography and Groupality in La Carpeta de los Diez was published in 2023 by ArtexArte Fund in Buenos Aires.
