Photographs of Peggy Ferris by Omer Kursat

Omer Kursat presents “Peggy and The Roadrunners”, a photography exhibit at Human
Imagination, on display through October 31, 2012. The show features fifteen images
selected from the photographs of late Peggy Ferris, one of the first female journalists that arrived
in Honolulu after the war. Peggy and The Roadrunners, the book published in conjunction
with the show, will also be available for purchase during the exhibit, as well as through Amazon.
Omer depicts the timelessness of beauty and of artistic endeavors with images that are not only
visually captivating, but also inspiring. “In one very profound way, they represent the hopes and
dreams of so many of us over the decades and even the centuries for the achievement of
passionate, purposeful lives,” said Peter Shaindlin, in writing the foreword to the book. The
book also features a poem by local artist and poet Elsha Bohnert, titled “Peggy.”
The absence of factual information about the subjects portrayed in the images stirs the
imagination of the viewer, leads to speculations, and raises questions that remain unanswered.
The opening reception is on Thursday, October 4, 2012, at 6:00 p.m, at Human Imagination,
1154 Nuuanu Street, Honolulu, and is open to the public.
