Henry Wessel –Waikiki


Henry Wessel creates bodies of photographic images that subtly and effortlessly engage the viewer in a layered experience in a way that many photographers can only dream about accomplishing. His latest book, Waikiki (Steidl, 2011) is a skillful offering. This book chronicles our nostalgia-laden fantasy of paradise in the tropics as it butts up against the reality of Honolulu as a boomtown between the mid-seventies and the mid-eighties. The book was launched with a show in Cologne at the Galerie Thomas Zander last summer. It does not include a section from that exhibition of images taken at night, a longtime favorite practice for Wessel.
