Ka Iwi: Survival of a Coast
Ka Iwi is an often-viewed, often-threatened, yet largely
undiscovered stretch of natural coast on Oahu, minutes from
Honolulu. Albert Benedict "sees it new" so that
even longtime residents of the island, including photographers,
look at his pictures and say "where is this?" In
Ka Iwi, Survival of a Coast, he combines the precision of
black and white photography with his unusual eye to reveal
the region's spare and timeless beauty. Prose contributions
by Jean King, Carol Silva, and Sue Cowing add cultural and
historical context to the images in this collection.
