Robert Sturman

"As an artist, there is nothing more liberating than allowing a vision from the depths of the soul to fluidly emerge like a river from the unknown to the known."  - Robert Sturman

In 2003, photographer Robert Sturman began practicing yoga and stumbled upon an unexpected muse for his art.  Of import, the woman in the third photograph is 93!
Yoga offered me an opportunity to change my life, but it was also something that was so beautiful to study, the poetry of asana. It started growing from being able to photograph people on the beach to being invited to a penitentiary with yoga programs to do yoga asana imagery there.
 Two beautiful artforms -- yoga and photography -- each elevated by the other.   And yes, I did another back bend in class today!
