Biography

Aaron Huey is a National Geographic photographer and the Founder and Creative Director of Amplifier.org.  As a photographer Huey has created over 30 stories for the National Geographic magazines and is a Contributing Artist at Harper’s Magazine. He is also widely known for his 3,349-mile solo walk across America (with his dog Cosmo) and his TED talk on Native American P.O.W. Camps. As a Global Ambassador for Stanford's d.School, and as a Media Experiments Fellow there, Huey focused on experiments using the human centered design process in both the analog and digital world to create visual campaigns.  His combination of art and storytelling as a tool for social change has resulted in the creation of the Pine Ridge Community Storytelling Project, The Sherpa Photo Fund, and his organization Amplifier.org, where he created the global art phenomenon called "We The People" with the artist Shepard Fairey. This viral visual campaign appeared at Women's March Rallies around the world and became the symbol of the American Resistance after the election of Donald Trump.
