In this interview street photographer Rinzi Ruiz talks about photography as a meditative exercise. He calls it „street zen“. Rinzi says: „Photography can change our minds, our emotions and many other things.“

When he found himself in a creative slump and stressed out working as an art director, street photography helped Rinzi to re-connect with the artist inside of him.

He says: „I felt that I had lost of part of myself, going up as a creative person. Basically, I was losing myself to the corporate life. I needed to find something to bring back my creativity.“

Dimitris Makrygiannakis

In this interview Greek photographer Dimitris Makrygiannakis tells how a broken leg and a trip to India fueled his passion for taking pictures and shaped his artistic vision.

Until photography became a cornerstone of his life, Dimitris used his camera on his travels to make the normal touristic shots.

These days, taking pictures has a different meaning for him. He says: „Sometime in 2010 and after a series of events I discovered artistic photography. I got totally hooked and since then photography is a part of my life everyday.”
