NUUANU & PAUAHI – A PHOTO EXHIBIT BY OMER KURSAT

September 27, 2012

Omer Kursat presents “Peggy & The Roadrunners”, a photography exhibit at Human Imagination, on display from October 4 through 31st, 2012. The show features fifteen images selected from the photographs of late Peggy Ferris, one of the first female journalists that arrived in Honolulu after the war. “Peggy and The Roadrunners”, the book published in conjunction with the show, will also be available for purchase during the exhibit, as well as through Amazon.

Omer depicts the timelessness of beauty and of artistic endeavors with images that are not only visually captivating, but also inspiring. “In one very profound way, they represent the hopes and dreams of so many of us over the decades and even the centuries for the achievement of passionate, purposeful lives,” said Peter Shaindlin, in writing the foreword to the book. The book also features a poem by local artist and poet Elsha Bohnert, titled “Peggy.”

The absence of factual information about the subjects portrayed in the images stirs the imagination of the viewer, leads to speculations, and raises questions that remain unanswered.

The opening reception is on Thursday, October 4, 2012, at 6:00 p.m, at Human Imagination, 1154 Nuuanu Street, Honolulu, and is open to the public.
