Photographer Aaron Huey, whose community-centered coverage of the Pine Ridge Reservation became both a TED talk and a National Geographic cover story (2012), will show how he worked with both communities and organizations to take a story beyond the editorial pages of magazines. He will also talk about his use of social media to grow and fund both non traditional projects and movements like his Honor the Treaties initiative.
Aaron Huey is a National Geographic Photographer, and Contributing Artist for Harper's magazine. His 8 year project on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation has taken many shapes, from a 2010 TED talk to a 2012 National Geographic magazine cover story, to an ongoing street art/advocacy campaign with Shepard Fairey. 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 everystep. He has done 25 stories for the National Geographic magazines, including a story on the Sherpa that will come out this fall.
