‘Vogue’ Wants Photos By This 5-Year-Old Photographer

National Geographic photographer Aaron Huey and his 5-year-old son Hawkeye went on a road trip around the west coast of the United States a year ago. Huey gave his son an analog camera in hopes that Hawkeye would think more deeply about what he was shooting.

“We were just a father and son going on our first big trip away from mom, headed from Seattle to the Salton Sea in Southern California to make, and sleep in, blanket forts,”Huey told TODAY.”On the drive there, I decided it would be fun for Hawkeye to have a camera for this journey since it’s how I spend much of my time looking at the world.”

Huey set up an Instagram account for his son to share his photographs with the public. His account was featured in Rolling Stone’s top 100 Instagramers as well as Time magazine’s 50 Instagram accounts to follow. It also has been featured on National Geographic’swebsite. Recently, Vogue commisioned him to take photos during Halloween in his neighborhood in Seattle.

Successful at 5 years old. Kids are really something else these days.
