In my nearly 20 years of photography I hope to capture... moments of intimacy through the relationship between light, shadow, and the element of composition. I do this using my beautiful home of Hawaii as my subject!
As a Hawaiian artist I try to convey through my photography my understanding of the traditional Hawaiian value that all natural resources of our environment, ocean(kai), land(aina), and sky(lani) are interrelated and culturally significant to Hawaii and its people. I show my photographs of Hawaii in hope that more people can enjoy the 'true' beauty of Hawaii and can begin to understand what my ancestors, the Hawaiian people, knew of our creation and how we are related to the earth. Because...."indigenous people see land as inseparable from spirituality"... and that through their vast knowledge of the environment their very existence depended on its care.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my work here in Hawaii.
