Tom Kualii enjoys taking extreme risks and finding great adventure through his visual exploration of Hawaii and, through that process, he also finds a connection to his Hawaiian roots. He says, “The Big Island is a treasury of extremes, ranging from lush windward tropical forests to soaring volcanic peaks, from the plains of Waimea, to the cliff-walled valley of Waipo; from the lunar desolation of Ka’u, to the ancient settlements of Kona, Kohala and Puna, the Big Island covers it all, and I cover the Big Island.”
