[ PORTFOLIO ]
Daniel Kinoshita calls his photography of the White Sands National Monument in New Mexico an exploration of "light, shadows and forms."
DURING a photo tour of New Mexico late last year, Daniel Kinoshita visited the White Sands National Monument, 275 square miles of desert that serves as a vast canvas upon which nature creates stunning works of art.
Kinoshita says the lure of sand dunes for photographers is "the opportunity to explore a textured landscape shaped by wind, warm and low morning and evening light, and shadows." White Sands enabled him to try his hand at capturing the artistic beauty of the dunes.
Today's photo spread is the first of a four-part "Portfolio" series of Kinoshita's New Mexico tour. Future installments will feature his visits to the Bosque Del Apache National Wildlife Refuge, Saint Francis de Paula Church and the San Miguel Mission Church.
Artists and photographers are invited to submit portfolios of their work. Send photocopied samples to Portfolio, Honolulu Star-Bulletin, 7 Waterfront Plaza, Suite 210, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813; or e-mail jpeg images to firstname.lastname@example.org
The wind and light perform their artistry on the dunes.
Lone bird tracks, shadows and a hardy plant capture the solitary mood of the environment.
