Henry Wessel’s ‘Waikiki’ Book

Capturing one of Honolulu’s most famous neighbourhoods, WaikikiHenry Wessels Waikiki Book is the photography book by Henry Wessel. The blurb says it ‘explores the contradictions of Waikiki – concrete hotels invading pristine beaches, culture encroaching on nature.’ We’d like to agree with that – although we do just like the pretty pictures. Look for its influence when the next round of spring lookbooks appear. Out on Steidl. Available from AmazonHenry Wessels Waikiki Book.
