Hotel Gondolín in Buenos Aires has been a home and refuge for transsexual and transgender sex workers for decades. It is a modern-day tenement run by the “authentic contemporary heroines” who reside there, fighting for their place in society with quiet dignity. Argentinian photographer Estefania d’Esperies and collaborator Patricio Binagni spent eight months documenting the daily realities of the residents producing an intimate portrait of Hotel Gondolín. Signed copies of the book available at HUNTCLUB.
