Aaron Huey has shot twenty-seven stories for National Geographic magazines. He is also a contributing artist for Harper’s magazine. Huey’s recent book Mitakuye Oyasin (All My Relations), published by Radius Books, won best photography book in the 2014 Independent Publisher Book Awards.

Huey is widely known for his 3,349 mile, solo walk across America (with his dog Cosmo). The 2002 journey lasted 154 days. They walked every step.
