Phil Jung offers an honest and genuine exploration into the island of O'ahu's extremely complex social system. The cultural identity, wealth distribution and social mobility of Hawaii's residents frequently contrasts with its idyllic backdrop. Staying clear of common “mainland” assumptions, Jung uses his camera to explore the relationship between the people who inhabit O'ahu and the landscape that binds them all together. His photos act as a loose narrative of contemporary culture in Hawai‘i.

Joseph Maida presents New Natives, a group of portraits of aspiring male models of mixed ethnicity and race from Hawai‘i. The subjects were scouted from New York through social media and photographed in their local terrain around the metropolis of Honolulu. Drawing from Hawaii’s royal history as well as its Eastern and Western influences, this series introduces visions of masculinity, identity, and sexuality that upend conventional hegemony on multiple registers.
