IN CONVERSATION WITH GINO RICARDO
Photography by Gino Ricardo
Interview by Melanie Meggs
Gino Ricardo is a motion graphic designer who is fascinated by pattern. Almost two years ago, he decided to buy a camera to film his trip to South Africa. After the trip he was feeling like the camera was just collecting dust on the shelf. So in June 2019, Gino decided to take his camera to work on a daily basis and explore the city during his one hour lunch breaks. This was the start of the one hour lunch break sessions and later would expand to Gino photographing on the weekends. First starting with taking pictures of architecture and later expanding it to street photography. Gino loves shooting architecture, finding comfort in walking around alone in an unknown city and taking pictures of beautiful buildings.
"The best images aren’t at the end of an expensive flight. They are just around the corner from your house if you are willing to take a walk and really see."
