July 2 – August 6, 2015
Opening Reception Thursday, July 2, 2015, 7-9pm. 

Kahuku Football, also known as the Pride of the North Shore.  I attended Kahuku for my junior year of high school.  I never played football, ever, let alone at Kahuku, but even attending this school for a year, I came to realize the power, respect and pride that comes with being part of the football program at Kahuku.  These images were taken during the 2014 season over various games taken on my twin lens reflex Rolleiflex 2.8F camera on Ilford HP5 pushed to 3200 by theFINDlab.  Although I never gained access to the sidelines I tried to capture what Kahuku Football is all about, the community from a 23 mile stretch that supports these young men.  This is more than just football, this is a sense of community, a sense of belonging, and a sense of pride.   I plan to continue this project this year in 2015 in hopes I can gain further access to document the season as a whole.
