An exhibit of long-exposure photographs taken along Oahu’s rugged Ka Iwi coast opens on Jan. 31, 2015 at the Gallery At Ward Centre in Honolulu. I’m a member, one of 17 artists who are part of the cooperative that owns and runs the gallery.
These are new photographs; they’ve never been exhibited before. They capture a reality that can’t be seen by the human eye, a different reality that one can capture with long exposure photography.
The Ka Iwi coastline is raw beauty, very little of the white sand beaches that Hawaii is known for, but much rugged black lava, pounding waves, and the hardy scrub brush that thrives in the harsh conditions. I often photograph along the coastline, always finding new ways to view the ever-changing land- and sea-scapes.
This exhibit will also be supplemented with three photographs taken in Tokyo, Japan. Two of the three in this group have never been exhibited.
The show runs through Feb. 26. The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday through Saturday, and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays.
We’ll have an opening reception on Sunday, Feb. 8 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the gallery. It will be a joint reception for other coop members who are showing with me in February.
