Aaron Huey: The Afghanistan Drug WarOctober 30th, 2008 by Alex
Aaron Huey is a guy who can take some seriously good photographs. Best known for his Walk Across America, Aaron has been all over the Middle East – Pakistan, Georgia, Iraq, Afghanistan and others – covering items of cultural and political significance.

Oh yea, all of Aaron’s images are available as limited edition prints in the following sizes – 11×14, 16×20, 20×24, 30×40 – and range from $500 to $4000. If you’ve got good taste, and plenty of spare cash, get in contact with him.
