Summary: Hot Tropic is a book of photographs by Jason Chu exploring the the macabre side of the tropics. All photographs were shot in Honolulu, Hawai‘i, 2019–2020. Over the course of nine months, this thematic lens directed the way images were shot, collected, and compiled. The print publication is the summation (or a summation, of many possible outcomes) of the editorial project. A longer description of the project is available here.
