Ron Cooper is an award-winning travel, documentary, and portrait photographer based in Denver, Colorado. His work celebrates humankind, focusing on people, in particular, who adopt personas outside of their day-to-day lives. Ron has photographed drag performers in Cuba to Civil War reenactors in New Mexico. And along the way, he has photographed hundreds of Santas. We Are Santa is his first book.

You might ask, "What about the one real Santa?"

He’s asked us not to tell you which one he is, but if you look closely, you just might spot him in these pages.
