The Black Yogi Takes the Night. Photography by Joe Longo. {Part One}

TBY in the subway 1

About a week ago on en-route to my hometown of Philly from NYC while sitting on a Greyhound I had a vision for a photo shoot in my hometown.

Two things I was sure of at that time. I wanted to model with The City of Brotherly Love as my back drop. And I wanted Joe Longo to photograph it.

This first part of the two-part photo shoot takes place on a subway platform. Take a look Joe’s work as he captures the light within.

 Joe has been photographing the world around him for over ten years. He has developed a unique style, and gains inspiration from everything that comes in to his field of view. 

Joe Longo is a Portrait Photographer and Kundalini & Vinyasa yoga instructor based out of Pennsylvania. Joe’s mission is to capture the true light within his subject.
