In this episode of ISO 400, we hear from Rinzi Ruiz, a street and wedding photographer based in Los Angeles. Towards the of 2011, Ruiz was laid off a job he had for 10 years, and this gave him time to focus on his photography. He found his zen in street photography on the streets of Los Angeles. His high contrast monochrome images are deeply meditative, and they have excellent lighting.
He became known for a blog called Street Zen, in which he posts images he makes on the street. More of his work can be found on his website and his Instagram.
A selection of his work and the episode can be seen after the break.
