Hello there. My name is Aria Newton. I attended Massachusetts College of Art and Design and was lucky enough to study and assistant teach with Laura McPhee, Abelardo Morell and Nick Nixon.
After graduating with a BFA in Photography, I began working in high end photo retouching and printing studios in New York City. My clients have ranged from photojournalists to fine art photographers to fashion and advertising photographers. I was fortunate to work with Lynsey Addario, the late Tim Hetherington, Loreal and Vogue Magazine. I was trained by some of the best retouchers and printers in New York City and specialised in beauty retouching.
While working with other photographers during these years, I continued to develop my own portfolio of personal work. I made pictures of the natural landscape around me and also of the artificial landscapes in zoos and natural history museums around the world. This work was exhibited in group shows throughout the U.S.
