“The Zen of Photography” is a beautifully created video with meditative music and photographs by street photographers Rinzi Ruiz and Jonathan Alcorn. After a brief introduction to their lives as freelance photographers, the pair describe the zen their zen approach to their craft. There is a calm and order within their photography.
The video is short (less than 5 minutes), but has some wonderful moments of Zen.
A beautiful quote from the video: “I see people, I see souls. All these little moments are the story of the city.”
Published Video Description: Street photographer Rinzi Ruiz and photojournalist Jonathan Alcorn are both photographers based in the Los Angeles area, but they find their zen in photography in quite different places. For Ruiz, the bustle of downtown L.A. helps him find his flow, while Alcorn loses himself photographing skaters and surfer-types at Venice Beach. Wherever you find it, there's nothing like the bliss of shooting in your favorite environment.
