In his “Breathing Life” photo project, photographer and filmmaker Michael Synder masterfully blends human bodies in yogic postures with the intricate structures of plants and trees. The project explores how human and non-human life forms are united through the simple act of breathing air.

More about the project:

The images were shot in Washington D.C.’s Meridian Hill / Malcolm X Park with local yoga instructors Hawah Kasat and Helena Snyder.  The project was created in partnership with Washington Parks & People, One Common Unity and Interdependent Pictures, Washington D.C. based organizations with a unified mission to breathe life into urban green spaces and connect urban communities to the earth. 

Synder, who is based in Washington D.C, is the founder of a media production studio working with environmental and social-good organizations. The works of this award winning artist have been featured in numerous galleries, magazines, books, television and at film festivals around the world.

Artist Crystal Wagner’s describes her latest art installation as a conduit or space between the artificial environment created by our everyday experiences with man-made materials and technology, and the exotic landscapes on the surface of planet earth.Wagner’s gorgeous piece, currently on display at the Makery Gallery, Hilo Hawaii, has a lush organic quality, which makes it seem like a life form has taken root and is growing over the walls of the place.
