Established as one of Hawaii's renowned artists, Randy Jay Braun began his journey as a student of anthropology and documentary film at Occidental College in 1984. It was that year when Braun was sent to Hawaii for an internship at the Kamehameha Schools. There, his passion for island culture blossomed. Braun immersed himself in Hawaii's diversity. He was so enchanted by the ancient dance of Hawaii that he began to study hula as a student in a halau. With camera in hand, he documented kumu hula and accomplished dancers on several islands. He is recognized for his "old style" black and white portraits of Hawaiian people. Having earned Kahili, Pele, and Na Hoku Hanohano awards, Braun strives for cultural authenticity in his work, while using a soft, artistic touch in his photographs. Establishing in 1989, his gallery is located in Makawao, Maui.
