A Glimpse of True Beauty
Sohee Chu, photographer, designer and author of the book, met the women in their homes and asked what gave them strength and hope in their daily lives. For one, that meant cooking; for another it was canoeing, or reading, or spending time with her kids. Such moments revealed glimpses of true beauty, the kind that comes from the heart.
Why the title, "Aloha Hope"? The root of the Hawaiian word "aloha" consists of [alo=presence, face] + [ha=breath]: "the presence of (divine) breath." It is easy to witness this "aloha" hope in the lives of these women, and you are invited to experience it through these photographs.
This self-funded photo project benefits the organization Women In Need (WIN). All proceeds of your book purchase will go toward supporting this incredibly worthy organization. Thank you.
