Wide Open

Wide Open with i.m. ruzz is an independent publication launched in April 2022 by photographer i.m. ruzz.

I've started this "publication" after years of hopping from platform to platform. Building audiences, building relationships and jumping through each platform's hoops. I've had enough of following instagram's rules. I've had enough of people being half asleep while scrolling through the work that makes me.. well, me. I'm opting for a smaller, more rambunctious crowd of people who genuinely care.

Defeat the Algorithms.

Why are you letting a computer program decide what you see and experience? because it's easier? Because you never thought about it? Do you really want strangers writing code for a huge corporation (and trying to meet their objectives) being the final say on what ends up before your eyes. I don't.
