More About Stefan Ruiz
Born in San Francisco, of Mexican/Italian descent, Ruiz studied art in California and Venice. In 1990, after documenting Islam's influence on traditional West African art, and with a scholarship from The Color Purple Foundation, Ruiz turned to photography. He now works regularly for publications around the world including Rolling Stone and the New York Times Magazine.
Ruiz is a wondeful photographer, his spirit and aesthetic are properly captured in this book.
Beautiful "People" Mar 9, 2007
I was amazed at the range of feelings that this book evoked... the physical beauty of the photographs themselves, and the stimulating thoughts that proceed. It showed me that beautiful souls are within all different people, indiscriminately and unconditionally.
A refreshing new Voice in the World of Photography Nov 10, 2006
This book is amazing! When I opened the book I was won over by the depth and complexity of the photographs. There is a sensitivity to the way he portrays his subjects that is refreshing. Stefan Ruiz is an exciting new voice in the photography world.
