Stepping into the Lives of Others with @rayyiuradzi
To see more photos and videos from Rayyiu Radzi’s travels, follow @rayyiuradzi on Instagram.
"I capture people and tell their stories," says Rayyiu Radzi (@rayyiuradzi), a 25-year-old photojournalist from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. His striking high-contrast photos are often candid portraits of strangers he’s stopped on the street. “In the work I do, the people who allow me into their lives is what makes the photograph.”
Rayyiu is currently Instagramming from Bangladesh where he says he’s “documenting the human condition and culture,” but his work has also taken him throughout Asia and the Middle East. While he’s traveled extensively, the place that has left the greatest impression on him was Rajasthan, India. “I’ve been there twice,” says Rayyiu, “Amazing light, good food, vivid buildings, overly-friendly people.” He’ll make a third trip in March to document the city’s Holi Festival.
For travelers that want to engage with locals through photography, Rayyiu offers these tips: “Knowing at least a small amount of the local language is important when attempting to shoot a portrait. And don’t be a tourist. Plan less. Go slowly.”

Wes Anderson has become a film genre. The great folks at Way Too Indie explore his visual themes from his work in ‘Rushmore,’ ‘Bottle Rocket,’ ‘Royal Tenenbaums,’ ‘Moonrise Kingdom,’ ‘Darjeeling Limited,’ to his latest work in ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel.’
“The tracking camera, moving from room to room, examining the bourgeoisie and upper class in the films of Luis Buñuel (e.g. ‘El Angel Exterminador’) laid the groundwork for the dolly and tracking shots in Anderson’s ‘Rushmore,’ ‘The Royal Tenenbaums’ and early sections of ‘The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.’ The frenetic energy and overall zeal found in François Truffaut’s ‘Jules et Jim’ serves also as the celluloid backbone of most of Anderson’s works, specifically ‘Bottle Rocket,’ ‘The Royal Tenenbaums,’ and ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox.’ The melancholic swoons of the silver screen’s longing romantics permeate ‘Moonrise Kingdom,’ ‘Hotel Chevalier’/‘The Darjeeling Limited’ and in the romance subplot of ‘Bottle Rocket.’ These films share the same sort of beautiful yet honest moments found in Jean-Luc Godard’s ‘Pierrot Le Fou.’” —Nelson Carvajal, Way Too Indie
