Description

Finalist in the 2017 Bowness Photography Prize, this image is part of a series of aerial images of Hawaii taken in 2016. It shows the summit of Mauna Kea, a dormant volcano on the island of Hawaii. The volcano is sacred to Hawaiians and is home to the snow goddess Poli‘ahu. With a height 4,207 metres above sea level, its summit is the highest point in Hawaii state and has the world’s largest astronomical observatory. In this image the access road to the summit switch-backs across slopes of the volcano creating a design that physically intrudes yet graphically harmonizes with the land-form.
