Photographer Central Profile
Photojournalist Bart Ah You has been capturing moments in the lives of people throughout California for more than a quarter century. His images became a staple of everyday life for Central Valley residents during his award-winning career at the Modesto Bee. His work has appeared on book covers and in magazines such as Time, Newsweek and People, as well as in newspapers throughout the country.

Simply put, if the human element is involved, Bart likely has taken a picture of it.

'When people ask me what subjects I love taking pictures of the most, my answer is always the same: It’s people. It’s families and friends interacting with each other, or people in my community just living their lives. It’s an honor to have people trust me enough to let me photograph the moments that are most precious to them. That’s what it’s always been about for me.' – Bart Ah You
