Los Angeles, CA (WiredPRNews.com) Los Angeles based fashion/editorial photographer Erik Von Haines of Blinkwest Studios has been selected by start-up artbook publisher Red Herring Arts to create a coffee table photobook tentatively titled “Silence and Sand”. The fine art project will feature over 80 pages of highly stylized and artistic photos of women and men as they practice yoga in a barren desert setting.
“The project began as a personal project for me that I started last year. So many of the models I work with are really into yoga and they all got very animated about the project once I told them about it. I shared some of the images with Red Herring and the project almost immediately inspired the book. I wasn’t expecting that response” says Erik Haines.
“Erik’s work was already familiar to us and we have worked with him over the years. He’s always been such an artistic visionary, a pleasure to work with and a consummate professional. I think that is why this project seemed like such a logical choice” Red Herring Arts editor Vivian Anne Stephen is quoted as saying.
The large edition book is tentatively scheduled for a spring 2012 release.
