"Misrach shot this series in Hawaii, beginning in 2001. He chose the location for the obvious reasons: The beaches are beautiful, the light is dazzling and there is an endless supply of tourists doing what tourists do best—next to nothing, for hours on end.

"More important, Misrach found a hotel built so close to the shore that the balconies of its upper rooms provided a bird's-eye view of the ocean below. To see what he saw through the lens of his large-format camera—now enlarged to 8-, 9- and 10-foot-long prints—is to feel as if you are floating, just like many of the people in the pictures. They seem to be as weightless as angels, thanks to the saltwater." (David Pagel)
