Vergnion's early works are mainly graphic monochromes. What follows is a period of conceptual photographic series where narration becomes introspective, intimate, and delicately sensual as evidenced in Self Study, Male Nudes, and Happening. The incorporation of colour occurs gradually, first added manually with brush strokes directly onto the silver gelatin print, and later through various analogue and digital procedures. Vergnion acknowledges the influence of painting in her work. Courtesy Galerija Fotografija.
