Elise Rosica

My passion for photography was awakened at age nine when I discovered a Kodak Brownie camera that was left in the attic by our home's former occupant. I used that camera until it finally stopped working, but I still have the B&W photos I took with it all those years ago. Originally from Ithaca, Honolulu has been home since 2002. The magic of the Islands feed my soul. It has been said the eyes are the windows to the soul. If that's true, then a photographer's images are the tangible manifestations of that soul.
