An Unending Sunday morning

During the Covid-19 lockdown, I cycled to different parts of London to photograph trans and non-binary people outside of their homes. An Unending Sunday morning is a photographic documentation of our unique experiences and feelings of isolation, separation and struggle. Although this body of work focuses on the effects of the global pandemic, it also acts as an exploration of how these atemporal emotions exist outside of this specific period of time.

The work could resemble a collection of spontaneous encounters with individuals who gaze at the lens outside or near their homes. These large-format black and white photographs thus suggest a potential parallel reality, in which these portraits might or might not have been taken on a calm Sunday morning. Between January and April 2021, I cycled 600 kilometres and photographed forty-five people. With each meeting and with each photograph I also delved into their stories and our shared experiences.

The process of making this series was as significant as the results – from the email exchanges, to bike rides in challenging weather conditions, to the development of the films in my kitchen. The series also acted as a coping mechanism, a space for reflection and a way of remaining optimistic despite the challenges posed by the health crisis. The series title comes from this continuous and peculiar sense of time developed as a result of the pandemic - where each day of the week feels like a “never-ending Sunday morning”.


I am an Argentinian-born and London-based photographer. Before moving to the UK, I lived in Paris, where I obtained an MSc in Computer Graphics at Université Pierre et Marie Curie in 2010. While completing my science degree, I started taking portraits as a self-taught photographer and practiced for ten years before beginning my Photography MA at the Royal College of Art. I’ve obtained my MA in Photography at the Royal College of Art this year.

My practice is concerned with body politics and gender, representation and visibility of dissident identities. My work embodies both documentary and activist notions. I use the camera as a tool for promoting equality and positive change. I confront the cisgender gaze and hegemonic heteronormativity by subverting the fetishized eye of the apparatus. Working with my community helps form a collective, internal and unbiased perspective of our representation within photography.

Throughout my practice, I employ a large-format camera accompanied by a process of slowing down – allowing me to develop a relationship with the individuals I photograph. I am interested in documenting the lives and accounts of others as well as the frequent intersections with my own experiences. In this sense, I regard my practice as a method of exploring my own gender identity and sexuality.

While my photographic series occupy gallery spaces, they are also housed in street art campaigns with which I aim to raise further questions of access and privilege.
