Rob Aft started taking pictures with a Kodak Brownie when he was 10. He has had the good fortune to travel, work, live and take pictures in many of the world's most beautiful places. His photos from Kenya and Nepal have appeared in exhibitions in London organized by International Alert and his photo of South African performance artist, Robin Rhode, appeared on the cover of the Los Angeles Museum of Art (LACMA) magazine. He recently had a show of "Rusty Trucks and Mushrooms" at the Village Green Gallery in Weston, Vermont. Though not a commercial photographer, his photos have been recognized and used by the Colombian Film Commission, musicians including Grammy-Winner, Fantastic Negrito, cultural institutions such as LA's Olvera Street, The Museum of Latin American Art, Tattoo Marque Magazine and non-profits including PATH, OPCC and The People Concern. He resides in Los Angeles, CA and Landgrove, VT.
Rob is guided by the spirit of the original "Horizon Hunter" - American explorer, adventurer, photographer and journalist, Harrison Forman.
His favorite photography quote is from Paul Strand:
"It is one thing to photograph people. It is another to make others care about them by revealing the core of their humanity."
