One of the highlights of our trip to Hawaii for POW WOW ’11 was spending some time with Young Kim. The performance artist, photographer, designer, creative director, and videographer has worked with many the major brands out there. His famous alterego – Suitman – is the physical representation of his cultural alienation and acceptance issues as he has lived and worked in many places since childhood.

With a long line of people waiting to be photographed for one of his personal projects in the signature hat, shades, and special Suitman x Visvim “suit apron”, the portraiture session proved to be one of the most popular attractions at this year’s event.
