Nearly 40 years ago, a 22-year old artist decided to document the changing landscape of Honolulu's most famous neighborhood --- Waikiki. That artist was local photographer Eric Yanagi.
Thanks to a state grant, Yanagi completed the year-long project in 1973. His focus was on the community that was living in a rapidly developing Waikiki. Now he’s compiled a collection of his photographs that are on display at UH Manoa, “Framing Paradise: Photography and Waikiki.”
“Framing Paradise: Photography and Waikiki” will be on display at the University of Hawaii Art Gallery through December 7.
