A pandemic kiss in Ecuador
Vicente Gaibor del Pino
Andy is a trans man who lives with his partner of five years, Alexandra. Since losing their jobs due to the pandemic, they now make a living by cooking and selling humitas – a South American dish.
As they taught me their technique for preparing humitas, I could feel their closeness as a couple, and their love for being, and working together.
While we drank coffee, I noticed the lovely light and I felt that it was the right time and place to ask for a portrait, and a pandemic kiss. Read Andy and Alexandra’s full story.
