Waikiki, one of Honolulu's most famous neighbourhoods, had already become a crowded tourist destination when Wessel photographed there in the late seventies and early eighties. This book contains Wessel's edit of these pictures and is a record of American leisure at this time: of surf, sand and inexhaustible pleasure seekers. Yet Wessel equally explores the contradictions of Waikiki - concrete hotels invading pristine beaches, culture encroaching on nature.
