Yoga In Unusual Spaces

On Friday September 17, 2010 Yoga In Unusual Spaces will be opening at Open Square in Holyoke, MA. 4 Open Square Holyoke, MA 01040

Please join us for the first of many openings on this project. Details below.

Photographer Jeffrey Byrnes, working in collaboration with Aaron Vega of Vega Yoga, has produced a photographic body of work that celebrates Yoga In Unusual Spaces. Aaron and Jeffrey, along with other yoga students, yogis, and contributing photographers Greg Saulmon and Tim Lastowski, have used Holyoke as a backdrop and setting to place an aesthetic emphasis of yoga mixed with urban settings. The image of a yoga pose fused with an urban setting creates a fine balance of the beauty and human form infusing strength mixed with an appealing yet reminiscent quality of Holyoke's historical and once thriving strength as an economical leader in time period. Please join us for our first opening reception of Yoga In Unusual Spaces.

July In Photos: Something New

Here are a few photographs that I made during the month of July. The first few are of the former 510 High st. Very late in July I was invited down to take a tour of the building. However, that didnt go according to plan. I was very disappointed, knowing the images I would have made, regardless of what the conditions were like. It took a few days to come down and a few days to clean up. But the city is one less beautiful building. Peter from Rambling Van Dog was one of the lucky ones to make it inside for the 2 minutes allowed to see the building. He always has some good photos on his site. Including the last fire that took place a few nights ago.

Back to the swing of things...

It has been a little while since I have posted anything new on here. There is good reason for that. Our studio has been pumping out a lot of portraits the past two months. We have been very busy making smiles and capturing them. Here is a sample of what we have been shooting.
