Between 1905 and 1909, Gurrey produced a series of fifty portraits of Native Hawaiians and other young men and women of mixed-race heritage, largely depicting people from the Kamehamaha School. These portraits were exhibited at the 1909 Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition in Seattle, Washington, and some were shown at the San Francisco Exposition (1915).
