Jaime Oriz | Zaragoza
Jaime Oriz is a photographer and journalist. He entered the sector starting out as a producer and editor in Aragon Television (Aragón en Abierto and Buenos Días) and, later, as culture editor of the newspaper 20 Minutos. After being closely linked to the world of concert photography, in 2015 he opted to devote himself fully to photography. He is characterized by being a photographer of the everyday theme – with a certain obsessive tendency for composition and chromatic play. His style is increasingly minimalist, and more disconnected from the reality.
His first exhibition was Live in Zaragoza (2014), at the Centro Cívico Delicias, a collection of photographs of concerts in Zaragoza. The second was Una de seis (2016), at the Cai Joaquín Roncal exhibition hall. It was followed by Retuerta (2018, Las Armas), with a series of images that sought to recreate the sensations of the book of the same name by author Jorge Omeñaca. The last one was “Diario en una sala de espera” (Diary in a waiting room), in which he portrayed the loneliness of hospitals from his personal point of view.
