Ever since being introduced to the world of photography by his Dad - a globe trotting National Geographic photographer, four-year-old Hawkeye Huey has been snapping away on his Fujifilm Instax 210 and uploading the results to his Instagram account.

"I thought it would be fun to see if we could both do something on a road trip that I would also enjoy, I wanted it to be art based, and since I am looking through a camera so often that seemed a good vehicle for collaborative exploration," said Huey when speaking to PetaPixel. "Our first with cameras, into the desert, was not about photography, it was about connecting as a father and son."

He added that getting him into photography wasn't a plan to kickstart his career, but rather to help him evolve as a person:

"Photographing people in this way opens him up to a lifetime of communicating with people who are different than him […] I think so many people get locked into a comfort zone with how we see the world and who we interact with, and we do that by limiting our exposure. Photography is one way for me to shatter that comfort zone, to be reminded every day that I go out with my camera, that there are infinite worlds to explore—that I am not the center of the universe, and that my ideas are among the many perspectives and manifestations of life that make up this world."
