Ka Iwi: Survival of a Coast

Albert Benedict

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.
