Vashties photographer, Edwin Ortiz Jr. just released his first photography book, The Odyssey” and we couldn’t be more proud of him! The title of the book pulls inspiration from the ancient Greek poem, “The Odyssey” by Homer. In Edwin’s words, here is what it’s all about:
“Wow. I can’t fucking believe it. It’s finally finished. I’ve been working on this book for the last three years. There’s been at least 20+ versions of this book that I’ve drafted. I thought I was done with this book so many times but something wouldn’t let me finish. I didn’t have the photos that I needed to convey the feelings I wanted to share with you. This book is the culmination of everything I’ve been feeling. This book has zero famous people. No edits. No cheesy shit. This is hard-hitting, gut wrenching images of what’s real to me. This is my fucking heart and I’m so glad I can share it with you. I hope you understand. I’m leaving again until I’ve lived and experienced enough to make my next book then I’ll meet you right back here again.” – Edwin Ortiz Jr.
