Pilar Vergara's internationally-reviewed photography book, "Female," was commercially published in 2018. In it, she captured powerful images of transgender women from all walks of life.

She also shot assignments for Reuters and the Associated Press. After moving to Washington, DC, Pilar was a regular contributor to the Washington City Paper and The Washington Post Magazine.


Her work has been exhibited and published in numerous journals, both here and abroad.
