The Connector recognizes exemplary photo work produced by SCAD students. This week’s featured photo is by first-year photography student Conrad Maxwell-Girod.

Artist statement:
“I took this one day after school toward the end of my senior year in the back of a friends car in the parking lot. A group of us were there talking, and she was explaining her frustrations with the way other students were treating her because she was the valedictorian. I always try to capture photographs of people as they are displaying their truest emotions so I shot this of her when she wasn’t looking.”

Congratulations, Conrad!
