Framing Paradise: Photography and WaikīkīOctober 7, 2012 - December 7, 2012
Manoa Campus, Art Building, University of Hawai'i Art Gallery
Millions of tourists flock to Waikīkī annually with cameras at-the-ready. Such travelers have been lured to and by Waikīkī for over a century—it is a place that has shaped the very idea of tourism. Early photographers snapped images of Waikīkī’s natural beauty, water sports, beaches, and cosmopolitan man-made structures. The amalgamation of these images created a visual mythology and iconography of Waikīkī that tourists sought to experience and capture for themselves. Through the medium of photography, "Framing Paradise: Photography and Waikīkī" explores interactions and encounters with Waikīkī.
"Framing Paradise: Photography and Waikīkī" features selections from "Hawaii," a portfolio by internationally recognized photographer Daido Moriyama, and from "Waikiki ’73," a portfolio by established Hawai‘i-based photographer Eric Yanagi, as well as over one hundred archival photographs taken by professionals and amateurs from the late 1800s to the mid-1900s. Written contributions by a number of local individuals bring a variety of voices and perspectives to the photographs on view. The education section of the exhibition provides visitors opportunities to compare significant events in the development of photography and Waikīkī.
Gallery hours: Mon. - Fri. 10:30 – 5:00; Sun. 12:00 – 5:00. Closed: Saturdays; Nov. 6, Election Day; Nov. 12, Veterans Day; Nov. 22, Thanksgiving Day; Nov. 23, gallery closed. Admission is free. Donations are appreciated. Parking fees may apply.
