These are images of my good friend and incredible yogi, John Salisbury. He practices at At One Yoga. If you're ever interested in checking out one of the best yoga instructors in town, sign up for one of his classes or workshops.
The vision behind these images stems from the idea that yoga should be practiced everywhere and not just on the mat in the studio. The essential lesson of yoga is the challenge of bringing what you've learned in class and meditation into the real world. With this project, I wanted to find locations in the city that would compliment that philosophy by juxtaposing the beauty of the practice with harsh lighting and "found" locations that were not typical of a yoga portrait. With that in mind, I was careful not to over produce and over light the subject. The majority of the images are straight out of camera and all have minimal lighting applied.
At One Yoga recently acquired these images to use as part of their clothing line, spiritual gangster. Keep an eye out for them in their ads and products. :-))
John is balancing on the top edge of parking garage. To his right is a 40 foot drop.
