A 4-year-old's Portrait of the American West
In April of 2014, when Hawkeye Huey was four years old, his father (National Geographic photographer Aaron Huey) bought him his first camera. Over the next 18 months the two made a series of adventures, traveling together around the American West making photographs, meeting strangers, chasing light, and learning how to see. They climbed Salvation Mountain, went into the chutes at the Cody Night Rodeo, visited the markets of the Navajo Nation, and cruised the Las Vegas strip. Between the ages of four and five Hawkeye took nearly a thousand instant photos. Many of those photographs and their journey were shared on an Instagram account created for Hawkeye. Now in the hands of his father, these photographs will become a book.
