Maui Arts & Cultural Center will present “Infinite Night, Photography” by Stan Honda at the Schaefer International Gallery from September 6 to October 22.
This solo exhibition will showcase the New York-based photojournalist’s work, highlighting his residency at Haleakala National Park and other works from his National Park Night Sky Project.
“Our connection to the universe lies in our view of the sky, and its preservation is important to our species and our heritage,” Honda said in a press release. “I want to show the beauty of what lies beyond our globe, a sight that many cannot experience as artificial light increases. But parks are places where you can see stars. This are these experiences that I try to represent through the images (of the exhibition).
Honda has worked as artist-in-residence at six national parks, including the Grand Canyon, Petrified Forest, Wupatki in Arizona, Rocky Mountain in Colorado, Chaco Culture National Historical Park in New Mexico, and Haleakala National Park in Maui.
A photojournalist for 34 years, he has covered a wide range of topics, including current events, politics, economics, sports and human interest stories. Honda’s astronomy-related photos have been featured in The New York Times, USA Today, National Geographic, Sky & Telescope and Yahoo News.
The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Tuesday to Saturday. Free entry.
“These night sky landscapes show the beauty of the sky relative to Earth as it moves through the universe with a multitude of stars, planets and other celestial objects, creating images that we cannot seeing and producing an image of both places and the passage of time”, according to a press release.
