13th Annual Palo Alto Weekly Photo Contest
"Who Are You"
About Nicky Hughes
woman in "Who Are You" had gone to an art show at Mid-Peninsula
High School to see some of her grandson's photographs, not to
end up in one. But when she stopped in a hallway to examine a
portrait of a wild-looking young man, Nicky Hughes saw a different
side of his grandmother, Norma Levitan. She had never seen a
mohawk before, according to Hughes.
"She wasn't quite sure what she was looking at. She was shocked." He
couldn't resist capturing it on camera.
Fortunately, Grandma likes the picture, and doesn't think Hughes was poking fun
at her when he took it.
Hughes, a 16-year-old sophomore at Mid-Peninsula High, has been taking photographs since he was 10, and doesn't ever plan to stop.
