Samoan Village (1982)

Two students from the Hawaii campus of Brigham Young University demonstrate handicrafts in front of a traditional fale talimalo house in the “Samoan Village” at the Polynesian Cultural Center in Laie, on the island of Oahu, Hawaii.

I made this picture from a Kodachrome slide I took on my first trip to Hawaii. For me, this “tourist” picture invokes the now-extinct 20th century vacation slide show; so I intentionally retained the original transparency’s “classic Kodachrome look.”
