Mo’olelo: Visual Storytelling of People’s Connection to the Land
Would you like to travel to Hawaii? The North Chatham Free Library invites you to do so. A team of creative photographers who live in Hawaii will present “Mo’olelo: Visual Storytelling of People’s Connection to the Land” on Sunday October 3 at 3 pm.
The group includes twelve artists, several of whom will present and discuss images and ideas with the audience. They write, “As artists, our common thread of interest is the beauty of nature and it’s fragile status. These images explore our human relationship to the land and our role in stewardship.” Their imagery includes digital techniques, abstraction, realism, and current events.
The photographers live in different areas of Hawaii and encompass a variety of backgrounds and interests. For instance, Kaʻōhua Lucas is a native Hawaiian who resides in Kalihi Uka and views the world through the lens of her kupuna (grandparents). Yvonne Jones is a transplant from London, England. Scott Kubo teaches photography at the HoMA School; his favorite subject matter is the nighttime sky & landscape.
The program will take place on zoom.
