Review — The beautiful model Marie Helvin, her younger sisters and brother spend a week of shooting in the Hawaii island of Molokai: Kishin SHINOYAMA doesn't miss a thing and succeeds in taking impressive shots of the casual intimacy of both the beautiful young women and the handsome young boy. He plays with great fortune with grains and colors: the choice of alternating series in colors and blue, green and sharp-contrast black monochrome in Hai ! Marie strongly reminds the reader of the fine Olele Olala (1971). One of Shinoyama's best and a personal favorite.

Le mannequin Marie Helvin et ses jeunes sœurs et frère se prêtent à une semaine de session dans l'île hawaïenne de Molokai, et SHINOYAMA Kishin s'en donne à cœur joie, réussissant d'impressionnants clichés d'intimité, aussi bien des belles jeunes femmes que du charmant jeune garçon. Il joue avec grand bonheur sur grains et couleurs: le choix d'alternaner les séries couleurs et monochromes bleu, vert et noir à fort contraste, place par ailleurs Hai ! Marie dans la droite ligne du superbe Olele Olala (1971). Un des meilleurs Shinoyama, et un favori personnel.
