Franco shows photographs and tells stories about situations and encounters that were made possible by his going out with a camera to photograph and, as a result, led to varied experiences that have affected his life. Expeditions to historic Hawaiian places of myth and legend are discussed along with explanations and anecdotes about photographs of various people and places as well as moments when absolutely nothing was happening.
This is the introductory talk for Franco`s new class Photography + Experience.v2 and is open to the public.
Photographer Franco Salmoiraghi has been working in Hawai`i since 1968 and his photographs of Hawai`i appear in numerous books and magazines. Recent publications include Faces in Time, a portfolio from his archive that was featured in the 2010 holiday issue of Honolulu Magazine, and several portfolio sections and writing in the book Big Island Journey. Large recent prints may be seen in the current exhibition at the Hawai`i State Art Museum: Works by Individual Artist Fellowship Recipients. His photographs are also included in many public and private collections.
