Lenny Kaholo is a freelance photographer from Honolulu, Hawaiʻi.
His work has appeared in Midweek, Honolulu Advertiser, Hawaiʻi Luxury Magazine, Honolulu Magazine, Manifold Magazine and displayed in galleries such as Hawaiʻi Pacific University's Art Gallery, Honolulu Museum of Art, the Arts at Mark's Garage and the Aria Art Gallery in Florence, Italy.
Currently Lenny is launching the Alternative Conservation Foundation, a non-profit that uses alternative photographic processes to raise money for marine conservation projects.
One of the more difficult alternative processes is Wetplate Collodion, which was invented in 1851 by Frederick Scott Archer and was the mainstream photographic medium of the late 1800's. Wetplate is a demanding, hands-on process that requires the use of very dangerous chemicals, large cameras and portable darkrooms. Because the plate is touched multiple times during the exposure, each image exhibits direct traces of human handling. And because no negative is involved, each plate is one of a kind.
