Every Night Temo Ser La Dinner

by Sofia Ayarzagoitia

‘Every Night Temo Ser La Dinner’ is an edit of Sofia Ayarzagoitia’s images, sketches, and diary pages during her stay in Madrid. Winner of the photographic competition La Fábrica in 2016, the project deals with intimacy, consisting of different stories of friends, random nocturnal connections, her androgynous rat Gustav, her trips. ‘I used to go every day to Plaza Lavapies, searching for something. I wanted to get inside that secret world that I felt so close to, and understand it.’ In her diary and book, Sofia uses a Mexican slang called “pocho”, which blends Spanish and American English, as in the title of the project.
