Episode Info:

Aaron Huey is a National Geographic photographer who has contributed dozens of cover and feature stories to the magazine. His photography details a wide range of stories from Sherpas on Everest, to life on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, and most recently, Aaron detailed the fight to preserve America’s national monuments like Bears Ears.

Aaron is also the founder of Amplifier, a design lab that builds art to amplify the voices of grassroots movements.. He was the design director for their art project “We The People” that flooded the streets of Donald Trump’s Inauguration and the women’s march of 2017, and has become one of the world’s most iconic artistic movements.

In this conversation, Aaron and I discuss how his background as an artist influences his photography, how he is breaking out of the conventional forms of photojournalism to tell more nuanced and powerful stories, and how he stepped across the journalism and activism divide, and helped create one of the most viral artistic movements in history.
