À propos du livre
A catalog of a groundbreaking photography exhibit in Honolulu, Hawaii from September 1, 2022 to October 30, 2022 at the Downtown Art Center. The portraits of nine women of Micronesian ancestry, all wearing the signature "Micronesian skirt," challenges viewers to examine their preconceived assumptions about this immigrant group. Viewers no doubt will be surprised to discover that among the women portrayed are a PhD marine biologist, a diplomat, two attorneys, an educational administrator with a EdD, a CEO, a healthcare administrator, a writer and poet, and a social worker.

Floyd K. Takeuchi
Honolulu, Hawaii USA

His photography often focuses on finding beauty in daily life, whether it be on a remote Pacific Islands atoll or a side street in Tokyo. Floyd is a hybrid shooter, comfortable with digital capture, as well as using film cameras in his projects, too. His current film camera of choice is a mid-1950s Graflex Crown Graphic Special.
