point & shoot diary of 2022 so far 💞 • every show I’ve been going to, I’ve been primarily filming for my doc so most of my backstage views are being translated to a moving image. It’s interesting as well as equally challenging. But I’m still pushing for studio-esque portraits and honest moments to be caught as a photo - I’m really excited about this new chapter 💟

Do you have family from Ecuador? Do these photographs look familiar? Have you seen a version of this image but with your own family? I noticed that first when I was in an Ecuadorian restaurant once where the owner had photos of his family adorned, and one stood out to me because it was of his grandmother but she was standing on a staircase that looked so familiar to me. In 2019, when I was in a fellowship, I had an idea to do some investigative journalism, archive digging, and research into these photographs and ultimately, figure out more about this staircase, while still accepting the loose folklore I’ve heard about it through many familial and friendly sources. It was like oral tradition, how a similar story - that, it being a staircase in an old airport in Guayaquil - is passed down but not every detail or fact is the same. It was never confirmed if these photographs were taken by family members or if there was a professional photographer who took these. As of 2021, I’m returning back to this project (from 2019 to now, indie wrestling has been my life) and I’m starting with an open call. The biggest aspect of this project is how there’s variations of the origins of these photographs to their respective families and I want to hear them all. There is no deadline or limit to the submissions, the only requirement is if you have a photo featuring this staircase and if you have an anecdote connected to it - don’t hesitate to ask a family member about the photo and what they know or remember about it. For the longest, I considered this staircase as a visual motif of Ecuadorian history and our diaspora. And now I want to explore it further. 💛 If you have a photograph like this, please submit a picture or scan as well as all accompanying stories or information about them to: sofievasquezphotographygmail.com Thank you ❤️‍🔥 - Sofie

visions from when I was 19. Developed eight black and white rolls (thank you 992photolife ) from 2017 and 2018 to find memories of picking up my sisters after school and riding the Bx36 religiously because I was inspired by Bruce Davidson and wanted to do my own similar project but with my local bus. a simpler time ❣️
