Worth Repeating: Julián Uses Art To Survive

Kathleen Creedon
Julián Ledezma"

Julián Ledezma spent years trying to figure out how he could make his mark on the world through art. His sister, a singer, was there by his side as they went from one failed attempt to another, before Julián settled on photography.  

Little did he know that his passion for the medium would help him survive some of his darkest moments, including the death of the three women who raised him: his mother, grandmother and sister.

This story was recorded 12.10.19 at Brick as part of Worth Repeating's "#blessed" show.
