Shownotes


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 over the years 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.“

Walking around taking pictures not only made Rinzi grow as an artist, it also helped him to deal with stress and opened his eyes to what was happening around him. Since then the love to explore the world through the viewfinder of his camera has never stopped.

Asked for his „why“ in photography, Rinzi replies: „One of the goals of a being a photographer is creating a photograph that means something. An image that people can relate to, or that can produce an emotion when somebody sees it.“

Besides talking about the meaning of street zen and the transformative power of photography, we do some storytelling with four of Rinzi’s images.

Fernweh

In meinem Podcast interviewe ich Menschen, die ihre Reisen zu Erlebnissen jenseits der eigenen Komfortzone machen. Die Kamera spielt dabei eine große Rolle.

Fotografie

Die Fotografie ist ein Türöffner. Eine „Eintrittskarte“ in eine neue Welt.  Mit der Kamera tauchst du noch tiefer in einen Ort ein und kannst ihn bewusster erforschen.

Persönliches Wachstum

Reisen ist die beste Lebensschule. Die Fotografie kann dir nicht nur helfen, Land und Leute besser zu verstehen. Sondern auch noch mehr über dich selbst zu lernen.
