Nzaka explained in the interview with <strong><em>Between10and5</em></strong>:</p><p><div class="preroll-video"></div><ora-player></ora-player></p><blockquote><em>"Throughout the decade I always wanted to make impactful photographs that will make people stop. In the time I wanted to blur the lines between fine art and photo journalism, where you can have an informative image and one that aligns itself with the journalistic world. Also, one that you can hang up in a gallery and that stands on its own two feet, without a caption, that could be artistic as well as informative."</em></blockquote><p>Nzaka's passion to create portrait images of Africans with a progressive eye has, admittedly, made him one of South Africa's sought after photographers <a href="https://www.okayafrica.com/south-africa-fashion-style-culture-bloggers/" target="_blank">especially in South Africa's niche fashion and style culture</a>. <em>Everyday People Stories' </em>exact release date has yet to be publicly announced.
