The majority of students draw inspiration from their favourite literature, album or movie – anything deemed profound or personally meaningful enough to allow them to bust artistic boundaries and make the space truly their own.
Mark Hamilton, professional photographer and father of a West Orange High School Senior, used his camera savvy skills to capture the quirky event, even employing a drone to catch some colourful aerial snaps. Hamilton’s son decided to use one of his favourite movies, Nepolean Dynamite, as his muse.
“My son was elected Senior Class President. This was during his campaign,” Hamilton told Upworthy. “‘Vote for Pedro’ came up often in discussion. It fit.”
