Aaron Zaremsky remembers his interest in photography being inspired by the captivating images he saw in various magazines as a young child, as well as the stunning cinematography he viewed in films and documentaries. Growing up, he would continue to develop his passions for the visual arts. He also fed his curiosity about the world by immersing himself in numerous academic disciplines at school. He began taking photographs as a serious activity while studying abroad in Italy, and took classes with Marcella Hackbardt when he returned to Kenyon. These classes were a turning point for him, keeping him motivated at school despite struggling elsewhere, and proving to him how much he loved the craft. Aaron has worked as a freelancer at the Yellow Springs News since his time at Kenyon College, his Alma Mater, where he took images for the student newspaper. He has also contributed images as a professional to various other people and causes. He strives to produce images that are aesthetically engaging, yet clear and presentable to the viewer. He wants to evoke in his audience a sense of wonder and have them study scenes of the world they might not usually see.
In addition to photography, Aaron has developed skills as a writer through his experience at Kenyon College, a school that is nationally renowned for fostering literary interests in its students and producing excellent writers in any academic field. These skills have helped him immensely in his work, and he feels most fulfilled combining his interests on any given project, such as the journalism pieces he has done online and also the recent "Photo Poems" and "Photo Comics" he has shared here. He briefly attended Wright State University in 2017 to study Film, and has worked on some projects associated with the renowned Film program there. He plans to branch out into film/video work soon, by making documentaries and also some "visual albums" with musical/vocal accompaniment. He will share his work here, and "in person". He also plans to start creating DVJ (Disc and Video Jockey)/Audio Visual sets and perform them live.
In 2018, Aaron attended a photography workshop led by Jim Crotty in Hocking Hills. He found the instruction and experience to be very engaging and inspiring, motivating him to pursue his work with more commitment and focus.
In 2021, he attended an online workshop with Steven Bognar and Julia Reichart. He found their expertise and respect for the craft of filmmaking so impressive that the experience renewed and bolstered his commitment to branching out to film/video to make documentaries and other film/video projects.
In 2021, he attended an online writing workshop with Katherine Matthews at the Thurber House. This workshop solidified his desire to be a writer, and pushed him to pursue the craft with more fervor.
