Hawkeye Huey is National Geographic’s youngest photographer at five years old. At the age of four he went on a road trip across the American West with his Dad. Whilst on the trip Hawkeye took photos with a Fuji Instax camera. The two week trip led to many more trips over the next 18 months. The result was an incredible series of photographs with a unique perspective, Hawkeye being featured in Rolling Stones’ 100 Best Instagram Accounts, and the start of a dream to produce a photobook. Oh and I forgot to mention; over 100k followers on Instagram. Check out some of Hawkeye’s incredible photos below and then head over to kickstarter to help him get his photobook, ‘COWBOYS INDIANS HOBOS GAMBLERS PATRIOTS TOURISTS & SUNSETS‘, published.
Man with a pet crow, Seattle Waterfront, Washington. Photo by @hawkeyehuey, age 5 (8/17/15). This was one of the first images Hawkeye made with the clip-on lens that comes with his Instant camera. We usually don’t carry it because we thought it would be too easy to lose. We should use it more, it’s incredible! Check out the video in our profile link, it has footage of Hawkeye making this photo! #HawkeyeBook #Seattle #AnalogPhotography #Kickstarter #AnalogAmericanWest #Lomography #FilmIsNotDead
