On Grace and Strength

I just love to photograph strong, athletic women. Whether dancers or athletes they posses a confidence through their strength that is magnetic. On assignment on Phu Quoc Island in Vietnam recently, a chance encounter with a amazing yoga master, Cora Lee, from Hong Kong, led to an impromptu photoshoot early one morning as she graciously agreed to let me shoot her daily hour and a half yoga workout.

Cora was totally in her zone and so was I as the workout and the shoot progressed and the resulting images, save for a furniture heavy background spoiling an otherwise perfect color palette, are pleasing. Many thanks for your kindness and patience Cora.
