“Wade Koniakowsky’s focus is capturing Polynesian dreamscapes and the related emotional tie we have with far away lands. His vibe intersects with those same emotions–unspoiled, nirvana-esque landscapes, islander portraits, and ephemeral visions that make  you want to sell it all and travel.” 
 Jim Moriarty 
 president of Te Surfrider Foundation
