Hey guys! Thank you for visiting this portion of my website. There is a U in US is a social project I decided to start recently! There was one day where I was sitting on the couch, scrolling through facebook, realizing all of the negativity in the world today and kind of became a little disappointed. I immediately thought to myself well I know there is a lot of bad, but I personally have experienced a lot of good and it’s a shame that that is not being promoted more. I then thought some more and realized that the only way to correct a negative or hurtful thought process is to enlighten or help others to understand and so I figured as a photographer I could begin a social project to help with that. You never know the difference one person can make and even if I help just one person understand someone else I feel as if my mission is complete. I hope you come to this page and feel inspired! – Aaron
