About John Wehrheim

Sent to Hawaii by the Sierra Club in 1969, John Wehrheim did a series of articles entitled "Paradise Lost" and never went back to the Mainland. He began photographing Taylor Camp in 1971; after 2 years living with both refugees and villagers in Asia, John began to seriously document this tree-house community, seeing it as both a traditional village and refugee settlement - a hippie refuges camp next to a crystalline stream in a tropical forest along a beach in Paradise Photographer, writer and filmmaker, John lives on Kauai with his wife and daughter. His most recent film is also called TAYLOR CAMP.
