Waikiki After Dark



Published:

Photographer Alecia Hoyt, 28, leads a dual life: by day, she runs a wedding photography company; by night, she can be found on Kuhio Avenue in Waikiki taking pictures of a grittier scene. “The pictures I take in Waikiki and the environment I surround myself in there can be dark,” says Hoyt. “I see the weddings, family portraits and kids as a nice balance.” Her nightlife images show another side to Honolulu, one contrasting with the sunny Island representations so often perpetuated. For the aptly nicknamed “Marlboro man” photo (pictured, above), Hoyt snapped the subject just outside of Nashville’s, a country western bar. “He seemed so out of place to me, with the hat and boots,” she says, “so I find him visually interesting in that whole mishmash of people and things happening.” For more on Honolulu after dark, go here.
