One of the things i love most about being from Hawaii is getting to see firsthand how much creativity flows from this place. Amber Mozo is one of those people you live through vicariously on social media. She's got one of those unmistakeable laughs and a gaze you'll never forget. Her ability to capture moments so effortlessly is ridiculous. A quick glance at her Insty [ @ambermozo ] and you'll see what i'm talking about.
She recently released her first book, Chasing Light, which chronicles 80 days of travel around the world with her mother and siblings. It's much more than that, though. It's a bit of a love letter, to everyone with a desire to see the world, and also to those who have seen much and know how traveling can change you. It's been over 10 years since her Dad was lost to the ocean, photographing Pipeline here on the North Shore, and Amber takes us through her journey since then. Her words are vulnerable and passionate; and that's how I think of her photographs too. I never got to meet Jon Mozo, but i see glimpses of his light through Amber's book, and now you can too.

Congrats Amber on your first book and thank you for letting me take your photo. x
