Aapo Huhta (born in 1985) is a photographic artist living in Helsinki. 

Huhta combines elements of documentary practice and experimental darkroom techniques with subjective, mundane observations, building a range of ambiguous and often fragmented narratives in his work. His works are aesthetically acclaimed for their ability to turn the ordinary into enchanting. Exploring different forms of photographic narratives, methods, and possibilities plays a significant role in his work. The exploration has culminated in two photobooks, Block (Kehrer Verlag, 2015) and Omatandangole (Kehrer Verlag, 2019).

In 2014, Magnum Photos selected Huhta as one of the Top 30 Under 30 photographers. He received the award of the Young Nordic Photographer of the Year, by Fotografiska, in 2015 and was chosen for the Joop Swart Masterclass in 2016. In 2019, he was selected for a Young Artist of the Year award by Tampere Art Museum, in 2020.

Huhta is also known for his freelance assignment works. His work has been published in Vice, The Guardian/The Observer, Bloomberg Businessweek, Stern, The Washington Post, Financial Times, Die Zeit Magazine, Dazed Digital, Morgenbladet, Paper Journal, Fotografia Magazine, Suomen Kuvalehti, Image and Helsingin Sanomat among others.
