Magazine Interview With Photographer

Alex Ruffini 

March 6, 2015

By Londa R. Marks | Metal Music Interviews

Published By Rock Legend News, Firenze, Italy and

Tempi, Rome, Italy


(Excerpt from Interview magazine)

Rock Legend News: Your photography depicts an obvious understanding of rock music and musicians. When you saw Kiss performing in Italy for the first time you were inspired by the mix of music, stage design and make-up. Would you say that your approach to photography consists of capturing what the musician is experiencing in the creative area?

Alex Ruffini: Loving music and everything visual around it, I was first “hit” through my eyes, then through my heart. I was little more than a child, so any pretty distorted guitar was good enough to turn me on, and a showing off guitar or bass player was even better to me. Kiss were my very first love, I got lucky, that is why I have always been keen on groups from abroad!
