In an interview with My Modern Met, the photographer says, “Over the past year and a half I’ve gotten very involved in the yoga men community – the Yoga for Men FB page and group is over 100,000 members strong and many of them have offered a lot of perspective on what it feels like to begin and sustain a yoga practice even though many people still think ‘yoga is for chicks and hippies.'”
