Big Island Pictures - Kilauea Volcano
Big Island Pictures - Kilauea Volcano - Photographer Brad Lewis: The goal of my photography is to further the viewer's understanding and appreciation of the natural world. To contribute on a global scale, photographs that help us comprehend the bigger picture. In this series of images, "LavArt", I utilize movement, light, and texture of volcanic activity to open human emotions to the pulse of the Earth. I have chosen Kilauea Volcano on the island of Hawaii as my primary subject. Nowhere else on Earth is creation happening on a continual basis at such a rapid rate. I find it crucial that there exist visual reminders that the Earth is alive and fulfilling an agenda of it's own. It is my desire to continue generating positive inspiration by focusing on photography that captures this essence of creation, beauty, and raw power.
Big Island emerged from the sea millions of years ago, forged by the power of volcanoes. Today, Kilauea on Hawaii's Big Island is one of the few places in the world where visitors can come face to face with an active volcano. This once in a lifetime chance to safely explore one of the world's most active volcanoes makes Hawaii a destination unlike any other. One of the best ways to get close face to face experience is a helicopter flight for a volcano tour either from Hilo or Waikoloa, Kona. There many different ways to join one of several tour companies.
