About Aethan D. Hart

When I was 13 I wanted to go hunting.  My father, WWII v

When I was 13 I wanted to go hunting.  My father, a WWII vet, said I would be safer in the woods with a camera rather than a firearm.  So began my photographic journey with a Canon Demi, 35mm ½ frame camera I received for Christmas that year.

 

My mother was a visual artist and with my father, founded an audio visual business in Duluth, MN.  From an early age I was surrounded by art, audio visual recordings and equipment.  I was encouraged to take many pictures and teetered on a variety of platforms of stills (35mm-4x5) and motion (16mm film, video tape) through high school and college.  I have a BA in Art/Art History.  Since 1973, I was fortunate to have a career as television photojournalist.  I retired from that platform in 2016.

My images are what elicits an emotion within me at the time.  The camera is a tool to get those feelings out of me to be seen by others.

I find the process of recording fascinating.   Over the years my recording has been on film, video, audio tape and digital media.  At one time, I stamped the back of my still photos, “Documented by Aethan Hart.” Sometimes, the recording can be more exciting than the finished product.

  

Instead of shooting, I now acquire content.  My father was right, it is safer and more rewarding.
