A solo photography exhibition by Aydinaneth Ortiz titled Hogar

“In 2013, my life was forever changed when I lost my youngest brother, Geovany Ortiz, at the hands of my brother, Israel Ortiz, who suffers from schizophrenia. This tragic event shifted the focus of my art practice, and in an attempt to cope, I created an artist book titled La Condición de la Familia comprised of family photographs and my personal photo archive. The book, initially created to express my grief, has since allowed me to share my experience and connect with others who have also dealt with loss. Our grief was short-lived while we dealt with Israel’s rapidly declining mental health and substance abuse.” Aydinaneth Ortiz
