Maui photographer captures natural world during the pandemic shutdown

Fine art photographer Daniel Sullivan was featured on HPR last summer following his shark encounter while out in the ocean, taking pictures of whales with his son Tristan.

The Maui photographer was forced to shutter his Pā'ia gallery in 2021 during the pandemic. But he captured the Valley Isle in a rare state of natural replenishment, taking over 100,000 images, which he's edited into a 5-lb, 204-page hardcover (including pictures of kohala and the kayak that received the brunt of the shark attack).

The Conversation caught up with Sullivan (@DanielSullivanphotography) to talk about his recently published book, "Maui: Mauka to Makai," and the therapeutic nature of photography.

This interview aired on The Conversation on March 9, 2023. The Conversation airs weekdays at 11 a.m. on HPR-1.

Lillian Tsang is the senior producer of The Conversation. She has been part of the talk show team since it first aired in 2011. Contact her at ltsang@hawaiipublicradio.org.
