"Absolute Maui," which features the work of 30 photographers, 27 of whom live on Maui, is the first, new large-format book printed about the Valley Isle in over 10 years. The numerous qualities that make Maui unique and universally beloved are captured by the images in this stunning, 232-page book. "Absolute Maui" showcases the Maui that until now, only the sun, the stars and the birds could see-a dizzying perspective of rugged cliffs, surf-fringed reefs, hidden waterfalls and eroded mountain tops.
The book also shows Maui from a walker's perspective, with images of misty ocean coves, palm-shaded beaches, dramatic overlooks, smoldering sunsets and storybook skies vivid with rainbows. For the Maui most familiar to its longtime residents, there are pictures of famous local eateries, festive fairs and parades, cowboys, dancers, music makers and soulful portraits of islanders of Hawaiian ancestry. The book is available Costco.
“Absolute Maui” updates the island’s composite portrait by asking, “How does Maui look and feel in the 21st century?”
