Take the energy and aesthetic of a rock festival and pair it with the practice and food of a spiritual retreat.

FIRST HELD IN 2009, the Wanderlust Festival has now expanded to multiple locations across the US and Canada. This year was the first time it was held in Whistler, BC. I was tasked with shooting the event, and finding time to actually practice my yoga. The four days were a whirlwind of downward dogs, provocative talks, yoga pants, and solid music acts, including Thievery Corporation and Michael Franti.

A video series is soon to come but, for now, enjoy the pictures.
