I Am Polynesian

As part of an intensive photography workshop in Salt Lake City, Utah, I decided to do a story on the Polynesian community. Since I'm half Polynesian and originally from Hawaii, finding pacific islanders in the middle of Utah was intriguing. It started off as a story about "them" but very quickly became a more personal story about "us". I learned a great deal about this community and in turn a great deal about myself.

I am expanding on this project and plan to tell more in-depth stories highlighting individuals in the Polynesian community. Here is what Iā€™m looking for:

  • Person of Polynesian descent.

  • Has an inspiring or interesting story.

  • Willing to sign a contract for photos to be shared publicly for promotional purposes and possible publication.
