When you look at Mexico based wedding photographer Bruno Rezza’s work, it feels like you’re staring into Dumbledore’s Pensieve - into someone’s memory - witnessing moments - real and yet somehow apart. A documenter of the small details at the heart of life, Bruno’s photographic journey started when he was 22 years old, with a film camera his Aunt gave him. He now looks to photography as an avenue for marking history.
1. Why do you making images mean to you?
Making images is about the past, present and future, it is about our life and history. We are privileged to have the ability to admire the light and beauty of the everyday, making images is making our mark for the rest of the history.
2. What is life to you? What it Should be?
Life is a hug, a smile, a coffee with friends, a sunrise in the mountains, living life day by day on small details that photography helps us to share our vision of how we live.
In life we hould learn to worry a little less for material things and evaluate what really matters, the time.
3. Where did you grow up and how did That play a part in your photography?
I grew up in Chihuahua, Mexico as a neighborhood kid without technology, I didn;t know much about photography until, at 22 years old, my aunt gave me a film camera that belonged to a photographer who published in Nat Geo. I have only a few pictures of my childhood and adolescence, no many, so that makes me appreciate photography all the more.
4. There are a lot of professions out there - why be a photographer?
It was impossible not to fall in love with photography, the best decision of my life. Photography taught me to value my time and express myself, have a lifestyle and bring happiness to many people.
5. What's your background? Do you have a "second profession" or passion?
I have a Degree in Finance, I worked in a Bank but I lack the passion for it to pursue a career. In photography I feel right at home.
6. What movie did you love Recently?
Recently I saw a Cartoon movie “Inside Out” that helps me to understand a lot about persons and life.
7. Do you Shoot with your left or right eye?
Shoot with right eye, with the left eye I live the present.
8. Are there any experimental unseen images in your attic you'd like to show us now?
A few months ago I did a project with 3 photographers in the Sierra Tarahumara of Chihuahua about the indians; the project was published in a magazine in Mexico but not yet through social media.
9. Who do you respect - in photography or elsewhere?
First, I respect all those who follow their Passion every day and can call it a Job.
In photography I respect Fer Juaristi’s work, dedication, commitment and constant movement.
10. If you were to start all over again, is there anything you would do differently? Why?
Maybe I would have started photographing much younger.
Bonus Q: Do you think the gear you use Affects the way you photograph? Why?
I am a very simple person and I like to make easy decisions, and have tried different types of lenses and cameras, to the time now when I have simplified and gone to only using a Nikon 35mm 1.4 and Nikon DF.
GEAR until today:
- Shoulder Bag Leather Think Tank Retrospective 30
- Nikon DF
- Art Sigma 35mm 1.4
- Flash Yongnuo 560 IV
- LED lamp 300 LEDs
- Lots of Passion
