Grim Beauty, Despair, History and Suffering are some of the words that come to mind as I admire the photography of José Ortiz-Echagüe. His work is very stark and bleak, which is why I love it so much. You can feel the spirits of the people he photographed coming out of the pictures. José use of composition was spot on and helped to create unreal drama in his work. It’s interesting how someone who had no connection to the metal scene is respected by so many in the community.
