“I’ve been taking photographs for thirty years. I began working for a photography company in Waikiki – one of the first. We did black and white documentary photography for the hotels and travel organizations.
“Proust said that ‘The only real voyage of discovery consists not in seeing new landscapes, but in having new eyes…’ The camera gives me new eyes. When encountering an environment, I attempt to slow down and quiet my mind to discover something new that I haven’t noticed before. In doing so, I am learning something new about myself and the way I relate to and view the world. By sharing the images I take, I hope to share my appreciation of the environment that inspires me to want to protect it.”
