From Jonathan Canlas… This photo shoot is a realization of years of day dreaming about an imaginary party at Kahuku Farms. When I first toured the property with my family it reminded me of home. I grew up on farm in California. So the tractors and the dust where second nature to me. The beauty of the fruit and flowers in the natural environment was so inspiring. And as the day went on I found myself drawn to the banana orchards.
Walking down the road through the banana orchard you are enveloped by the fronds of the large banana trees. The tunnel of fronds hug the road leaving a dappled dance of light on the red dirt. From the first moment I walked this road I imagined a party; bright with color, rich with texture, and loud with laughter. The bananas trees create this long hall that feels like a beautiful indoor space almost like living wallpaper. I knew this could be something magical.
The creative confluence of the flowers, the lighting, the materials, the beautiful models brought to life the images in my mind. Every vendor brought their unique gifts to this party in the banana patch and made it come to life. It is a beautiful moment of time that harvested the very best that everyone has to offer.
