Peruvian photographer Angel Ruiz tells us: “I am a graphic designer but at the end of my studies I became more passionate about photography. So I started doing landscape, tourism, and advertisement photography until, one day, reading a photography blog, I found the following quote: ‘Shoot what you can’t help but shoot.’ That’s how it all started.”
On beginning to work as a photographer: “At first I did shoot with friends who, knowing I wanted to explore a different path in my work, gladly posed for me and gave me one of the most meaningful things someone can give you: their trust. I’ll be always grateful to them.”
On how he works: “I like to think about my photographic series as little stories, a mix of documentary and voyeur, together with cinematic lighting and composition. Even though I consider my process very intuitive, my approach is mostly raw, honest, intimate, and organic portraits.”
