My Modern Met shares an extensive feature and interview with LA photographer Amy Goalen’s project exploring male yoga warriors.
To show the mindful beauty of male-practised yoga, Goalen is creating a book titled Inside the Warrior - The Masculine Side of Yoga with writer Julian DeVoe. “One of the reasons we practice yoga is to embrace our present moment and to practice patience and self acceptance,” she reminds us. “Getting to interview and photograph as many different men as possible will allow us to create a book that will speak to all men.”
Framing each yogic pose as a heroic stance, Goalen shoots from floor-level. Her photography technique, she says, has strengthened with her own personal yoga practice.
