Congratulations to Peter Mclean, who received a silver medal award at the national Scholastic Art Awards for his photograph, “Barn 2010.” With a total of 185,000 Scholastic entries nationwide, only 1,500 students receive medals. This is the school's third national silver medal– a huge honor!
Peter shot the photo at home in Delaware, and described his inspiration as the desire to transmit unvarnished emotion through a visual medium. The mood he was working to invoke in this piece was a certain somber melancholy.
Peter is continuing to study photography at Dublin and is considering going to Art School in the future.
