Serpent in the Wilderness is a visual exploration of yoga that emerged from photographer Andy Richter’s personal practice and experience. After studying yoga for years, he decided to use his medium – photography – to search for the essence of the teachings. For more than half a decade, he traveled to places that are historically relevant to yoga’s past and others that embody its living present, documenting a variety of yoga traditions with many of the world’s great saints and yogis. The book reveals hidden layers and rarely seen dimensions of a profoundly spiritual path and way of life, from ashrams and caves throughout India to living rooms across America. Andy Richter is an American photographer based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, whose work has been exhibited internationally.
