Hilo 1993-1996

These photos were taken between the years 1993 and 1996 while I was studying photography at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.  During this time many of my childhood friends were living on Kou Lane in the Wainaku neighborhood.  It was not a “good” part of town. You got to Kou Lane by walking down a narrow pathway off of a main street, through old cane fields until you came upon a dozen plantation homes next to each other.  These small homes were probably those of the field workers, all two bedrooms with very small yards. At one point, at least half of these cottages were lived in by my friends, all between the ages of 20 and 25, many of whom had young children. These are my photos from this time.
