The First photoshoot went well, I decided to move from fitness to yoga and focus on the accessibility of yoga around us as individuals and how it is part of each of us.
Moving forward, thought the main focus would be on the yogawear which would be designed by picking the 3 or 4 main forms of yoga. This would be a conceptual project, representing the different practices of yoga into clothing. Unfortunately, after talking to designers and looking at potential production, it became clear that I would simply not be able to design a physical prototype of the yogawear. It would therefore have to be a mock up.
After a tutorial feedback from Phil and Malcom, I realized the location of the photos was just as important as the poses induced. This opened up a different angle to the project and made me realize that maybe the location was more important that the yogawear itself. The location would represent the yoga positions, the yoga positions would copy the architecture around us, to show that yoga is everywhere and in all of us, whether it’s in a urban area or the middle of the city. Yoga does not always have to be on the beach or in a garden. Suggesting that the mental state is more important than your surroundings.
