Marc Vincenz/Interview

On the surface, few believe that change can occur through rhetoric or wordplay and yet, a critical mass appears to be as easily swayable today as they were during the rise of the Communist parties of China or the Soviet Union or the National Socialist Party of Germany—or even more recent brain-scrubbers like Sun Myung Moon and L. Ron Hubbard. Public figures and media addicts somehow manage to float on even the flimsiest of logic. In the end it appears that it is emotion that sways a populace. How else could millions follow the obvious maniacal rants of a rug-headed, ineloquent narcissist whose family rechristened themselves after a deceptive playing card?

Katie Kanazawich / Photography

For a while I did carry a camera with me at all times, but I’m also practicing living the moment. I think there is a balance of being in the moment, and photographing the moment. Lately, I’ve been trying to photograph without using the screen to review, or the viewfinder at all. This way I can do both. I use a Canon 5d mkiii most of the time with a 50mm prime lens. When I don’t feel like carrying that around with me I have a Sony NEX 3, it’s way more compact and light weight. Occasionally I shoot 35mm film, or Instax film. I would say I use my phone as a last resort, mostly for selfies and pics of my dog Sheryl.

To; Polixeni Papapetrou:
Q) What film makes you cry?
A) This is a good question. I always and only seem to cry in films about the holocaust. Although I find these films difficult to watch, I push myself to watch them and also take my children to these films (aged 17 and 19) to never become complacent over the wrongness of what happened and to understand their paternal grandmother’s history.

Joel Nsadha / Photographer

My work has always been a way for me to tell the stories that I come across, but after I won a huge award I feel more conscious and intentional about my work in a way that I probably hadn’t before. I spent 10 years taking pictures of people and things because I loved the stories and places. I had no idea I was capturing moments and souls. Now I know I have to do it intentionally.

Mike Foldes/Laura Guese-Artist Interview

I consider painting itself to be so soothing and meditative for me. That is my form of meditation. Time stops while I’m painting and hours pass without me realizing it. It is such a great feeling to become totally lost in the creation of a painting.

Interview with “Rosebud” co-founder Rod Clark

We started out with Eastern News in ’93. John Lehman flew to New York, walked into the offices at Eastern, threw down a copy and said, “You folks need to distribute us!” They agreed, and they did carry us for a number of years. Then Eastern got bought by Hearst Publications, which was bad news for us — because of course, Randolph Hearst hated the movie Citizen Kane, in part, rumor has it, because “Rosebud” was not the name of his childhood sled — it was allegedly his nickname for his favorite part of his mistress’s anatomy, which is supposedly why he sued Orson Wells to prevent the release of the picture!

History…

The name Ragazine was coined in the mid-’70s in Columbus, Ohio, as the title of an alternative newspaper/magazine put together by a group of friends. It was revived in 2004 as ragazine.cc, the on-line magazine of arts, information and entertainment, a collaboration of artists, writers, poets, photographers, travelers and interested others. And that’s what it still is.
