I have photographed a few people practicing asana in the past, and have seen many photos, it is not any easy thing to do without making it look showy.
I think this black and white photo above works in revealing the practice without a “look at what i can do” sort of feel. For me it visually translates the way I
feel when I am moving through different asanas with my eyes closed; a brightness in the emptiness.

Alex changed into more traditional Indian clothing for these last few photos. He had purchased them on a recent trip to Indiana. He lit up when he spoke
of the trip, and the change of dress made sense on him. He had brought along his harmonium for the shoot, and again as he played and sang you can see
the joy and peacefulness that became him.
