Junior Student Wins Two Photography Prizes

Tristan Pinto ’18 was awarded the Grand Prize for his photography series “Pathways of Life from Ahigh” in the 2017 PDN Student Photo Contest. Tristan describes his series as “an aerial exploration that represents the pathways of success, spirtuality and mortality.” He shot in six diverse locations: Manhattan, NY; Miacomet Golf Course in Nantucket, MA; The Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya; a temple oasis in Rajasthan; an Indian hayfield; and Brooklyn's Green-Wood Cemetery. Tristan’s photos appeared in the spring issue of PDN’s magazine.
Last June, Tristan captured another win from New York’s 10th Congressional District in the Congressional Art Competition with his photo “Broadway Boogie Woogie Redux.” His photograph was displayed on Capitol Hill, and he was invited to Washington, D. C. to attend a reception at the Capitol with other winners and members of Congress.
