“Your soulmate is not someone that comes into your life peacefully. It is who comes to make you question things, who changes your reality, somebody that marks a before and after in your life. It is not the human being everyone has idealized, but an ordinary person, who manages to revolutionize your world in a second…”

“I want you. I want your sleepy confused look when you wake up. I want to be the warmth that fills the space in your bed. I want to be the sheets your fingers crave at night; the blanket that wraps around you all night. I want to drink tea with you, share some records we find. I want to talk about everything in the world newspapers. I want to discuss with you, to be stubborn and quick-witted with you. I want to have differences between us. I want your flaws. All of them. I want go into the deepest corners of your mind and never get bored of you. I want to be surprised by the new all the time. I want to look at you like a movie, a living piece of art; always trying to chase what you crave… and capture you.”

"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.”
