The YogaGraphy project is series of street photography of Yoga in the urban environnement. In all societies they have their way to meditate, some are using religion while some are finding their way through Qigong, Meta meditation, Sufi dance and Yoga. Many other different ways of meditation. The Yoga discipline has conquered more and more disciples the last years. Many studios opened here and there. The need of finding the freedom from the inside has become something more than just a trend. Kind of a paradigm shift taking down the negative effects of the modern society on our beings. I intend to bring it to the streets through my photography to show people the contrast, to oppose this practice to the outside world.
I’ve decided to also plublish the work on a separate website, to stay in the harmony of this project. Let’s see what it will bring and how the project will evolve in the next weeks and months. I’ll propably try to organize an exhibition of the photography. Until now the Yoginis that I’m working with are based in Paris why not trying new cities new places for more cityscape. I’ve always loved taking pictures of people in urban areas, mixing the style of street phohography with the Yoga discipline is making me having a different approach on the visuals that I’m looking for. I’ve started it in October 2017 with Claire Marvint a parisian Yogi that I met at my work few years ago. We’ve been roaming in different places to make this photography of Yoga that you maybe saw on my website or instagram through the #UrbanYogaInParis
If you’re interested to help me in this project at any level I’m open for it. So drop me a line by mail and let’s talk about it. Especially for finding new places.
