For over 20 years I have been documenting the Napali with large format Black & White film. This is still considered the only proven archival photographic media. The project has been to document the worldʻs second fastest eroding area for future generations. Images from this project have been used in 2 Kauai Museum exhibits on ʻpreservation through educationʻ Kauaiʻs remnants of itʻs glorious past.
