Dewitt Jones is one of America's top professional photographers. Twenty years as a freelancer for National Geographic, shooting stories all over the globe, has earned him a reputation as a world-class photojournalist.
As a motion picture director, he had two documentary films nominated for Academy Awards before he was thirty. His work is well known to the corporate world as well, in advertising campaigns for clients like— Dewar's Scotch, Canon, and United Airlines.
And Dewitt is well known here in the islands. He is a resident of Molokai, an island with a population of just seven thousand which lies but a few miles across the channel.
Today Dewitt will share with us both his creativity and his aloha. Through his photography he will open our eyes to a new way of seeing and, through the lessons he has learned here in Hawaii, he will open our hearts as well.
