Levoca is nothing special when you're looking to the map of eastern Slovakia. If you are traveling in this area (national parks, castles and so on), it would be a crime not to stop in the Levoca town. Take a break near the gate of Kosice, which is a monument and of course the main doors to the old town treasures of this beautiful town.

Levoca is a true museum of Renaissance buildings: from the lively town hall and church till the ancient walls. You can have a lunch in the center park of it, near the fountains and this is a place from where you can see how this fairy tale village is living. Just near the park there is a church, inside which you can find the tallest wooden altar of the whole Europe. There is also an old monastery of the Minorities, now incorporated into a Church grammar school. Nearby is the town’s Polish Gate, a Gothic construction of the 15th century. And so on and so on… I just could not believe that I did not hear about this place when I was planning my tour in Slovakia. This is a super natural lively old town of this area, and you just have to visit it.

While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.
There is nothing better than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier-Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time. And you showed us what it's like to be on time.
