Aaron Richter grew up in the Midwest but now calls Brooklyn home. A displaced writer and magazine editor, he has seen his photos appear in the pages of such titles as EsquireThe New York TimesCosmopolitan, GQSpin, Glamour, Nylon and Men's Health. He's also produced images for brands including Tom Ford Beauty, Alice + OliviaSaks Fifth AvenueAritzia, Reebok, Urban Outfitters and Clarks. In addition to his photo work, Aaron steered the art direction for self-titled, an iPad-based publication he helped launch in 2008, and served previously as the editor of MusicMusicMusic, a short-lived magazine that tanked a ton of money but made a few hip people very happy. Aaron enjoys reading long Neal Stephenson novels, re-watching Phantom Thread and mentally deliberating about which is the best of the generally bad Rolling Stones albums.
