  • New Natives

    New Natives are a group of portraits of aspiring male models of mixed ethnicity and race from Hawaii. The subjects are 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, which upend conventional hegemony on multiple registers.
