I’ve just published the street photography series “Honeymoon Factory Waikiki“. This was the first time I shot a themed series of photos with a project in mind, rather than randomly snapping on the streets. I’ve also tried my luck and submitted this series as my entry to the Magnum Photography Awards 2017. I’m very curious what the outcome will be.
What I first noticed when landing in Honolulu were couples in matching clothing. Almost the entire immigration queue consisted of honeymooners wearing the same shirt, trousers, hats or shoes and sometimes even the full partner look from head to toe. The biggest trend right now seems to be matching Birkenstocks.
When strolling through Waikiki, you find the same breed, in addition to some couples who run around in their wedding dresses and tuxedos to do pre-wedding shootings. This has cliché written all over it and hence I decided to create a photo series.
I hope you enjoy and I’m happy to hear your comments and thoughts! You find me under @thisishauser on social media.
