Stretch Series • Transcendence by Delali Ayivi
‘Transcendence’ is the new photographic series by Togolese German photographer Delali Ayivi created for ‘Stretch Series’, an initiative by Laura Tabet and Lauren Barrett, born out of passion for yoga and a desire to move away from the stereotypical depiction of the practice. Collaborating with emerging creative talents to open up the visual language associated with the discipline and start a new dialogue. Stretch Series aims to foster community — connecting one another through positive movement.
New to the practice, Delali’s images are a visual reflection of yoga through play and experimentation. An exercise in learning awareness of the body as a form of liberation. Captured between London and Lomé, Delali’s community are active collaborators in the dialogue, both in front of and behind the camera.
”Being new to yoga, I invited close friends and collaborators to explore their interpretations of movement and the body with me, through styling, set design, sports and dance. Shot across two cities, Transcendence explores ideas of identity, experimentation and self-awareness of both body and creative mind.” Delali Ayivi
