* Honorable Mention: Jarret Zundel – Immigrant’s Sacrifice

Artist: Jarret Zundel
Title: Immigrant’s Sacrifice
Grade: 9th grade
School: Miramonte High School
Teacher: Stacey Churchill

This photograph, my favorite of an album of photographs, is of my grandmother. She is a Chinese American immigrant. In the album, I tried to show the struggle and emotion of a Chinese American immigrant through the art of photography. I used symbolism. In the submitted photograph, the pain in her eyes while picking an orange stands for everything she lost to start a new life in the US. No matter how hard it was, she wanted the euphoria of that sweet orange so bad.
