50 Scapes:

50 Scapes: a magazine that lets you, the viewer, escape into one of our country’s beautiful states. So relax your mind, and focus on what is in front of you. Dive deep into detail, and dream about your future. Where will you go? What will you see? 50 magazine focuses on the land and its many uses. It is also a self-portrait of my travels around the country in order to capture everything the states have to offer.

Issue 001 is focused around Oahu, Maui, and Hawaii, which are the three major islands that make up the America’s 50th state– Hawaii. What I observe is a place of culture that becomes shared with the tourist industry.  It’s not about how far you hike or how much time you spend sitting on the beach. It’s about capturing the essence of the islands. It is about stopping the car, getting out, and experiencing. These are images that tell a story of the values and attitude of each destination.
