I endeavored to capture the essence of Duncan Gowdy through both photography and a brief interview. We were standing on Kailua Beach as the sun set, and Duncan was feeling out of sorts. I began with a simple inquiry:
If you could put up a billboard anywhere on earth, what would it say?
D: Hmmm….”Think small of yourself, and large of the world”
W: Great. Wonderful. Now, what was the best day of your life?
D: I don’t want to answer that.
W: Sad! But what class would you teach, if you had to teach?
D: I’m hungry, I want lunch.
W: Please stop avoiding my questions.
D: I guess I would teach a class on movie making.
