The folks of Chicago are some of the most passionate people I've had the honor of working with throughout my travels. When I arrived there last autumn, it had been raining nonstop and the forecast called for even more rain still yet to come.

I already had about 30 shoots set up — all outdoor — and I'll admit I was anxious about whether or not I'd end up with great imagery. My work requires a lot of getting low to the ground for the right perspective, so clearly I was worried about doing a good job in weather that was less than ideal.

But not one Chicagoan complained about the rain. The show went on as planned, proving that the art of asana can be performed anywhere, at any time. Here is a selection of 18 images I captured during my rainy stay in this glorious, All-American city.
