Colonie Central High School freshman Alex Melas started shooting photographs just last year for a school art assignment. This photo, along with two others, were sold at an art show.
continued Esmond set up the show at the library, titled “Portraits and Perspectives Through the Lenses of our Cameras,” which lasted throughout September, and had more than seven dozen of the students’ photographs. The students also had their work on display at the Arts Center of the Capital Region Annual “Fence Show” from July to August, where Melas sold two of his photographs. Melas won second place in the 2012 Town of Colonie Photography Contest.
A new show of the students’ work, “Our Town Through the Lenses of our Cameras,” will take place March 1 at Colonie Town Hall in the Supervisor’s Hallway.
