Alone and vulnerable at a given moment of time, several individuals are halted by the weight of life and the camera captures their heavy struggle with the human condition. The scenes portrayed ache with lonely desperation. Clinically, aphasia is the loss or impairment of the ability to understand words or speech, usually resulting from brain damage. Looking at Hijano's images makes the viewer wonder about the hidden wounds of these people and develop the an unfolding narrative that has brought them to this point.
Works from Ériver Hijano's Aphasia series are featured in Volume 3 of INSIGHT magazine.
