As a true desert dweller, AJ Kalinowski has called Arizona home for his entire life. He loves being outside and exploring natural landscapes because it allows him to escape all the “noise” of everyday life. The powerful, graceful, and awesome landscapes of this planet humble AJ and remind him of his connection to nature. AJ’s hope for his photography is to inspire others to think about their relationship with nature and responsibility to care for the planet we inhabit.
With that, AJ’s goal is to travel far and wide to the most wild and remote places on Earth. He want to be a force in the community that keeps the adventurous spirit of humanity alive by putting himself in places that most people would not. Discoveries are still waiting to be made out there whether it’s personal discovery or something that affects all of humanity. He hopes that the adventure in him can live on through his photographs and stories and that he can spark a passion in others to carry on the adventurist and activist spirit.
