19-4074 Old Volcano Road Volcano
A special evening presentation with Dino Morrow will be held on Thursday, April 18th starting at 6:30pm. The evening program will share the extensive collection of intimate images captured during various hula performances during Volcano Art Center’s Hula Arts At Kīlauea Program, which features free monthly Hula Kahiko Performances and other hula related arts on a year-round basis in Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park.
Morrow is a documentary and portrait photographer who specializes in candid shots of indigenous and local cultures. His current focus is to witness and respectfully document Hawaiian and indigenous cultures as an intimate and traditional expression: sense of place, identity, connection, art, values, spirituality and offering. For Morrow, the ultimate value of an image is given when the participants accept the perspective, composition and feeling to be honorable and authentic. In order to achieve this, he relies on a personal connection with the subject and a keen sense of a deeper understanding from their perspective. In short, Morrow says “Photography, for me, is trying to see what I feel…with a camera.”
This presentation is free, although a $5 donation to VAC is greatly appreciated.
