Hawaiian artist Jared Yamanuha takes his own photographs of iconic Hawaiian brands and images and expertly cuts finely detailed shapes into them. For these pieces, Yamanuha treats the photographs as raw material, applying the most amount of detail and intensity as possible.

“The whole collection is centered under the idea of ‘omiyage’ or the Japanese act of bringing small gifts back to friends from abroad. All of the pieces in my collection make reference to that tradition,” said Yamanuha. “I feel that I was able to authentically showcase a slice of Hawaii.”

Yamanuha most recently had his work featured at In4mation in Honolulu. In February and March of next year, Yamanuha will also be showcasing his work in San Francisco at the Museum of Craft and Design. (via booooooom and in4mation)
