Sophie Adams, a senior, has always had an interest in the arts. She started out with her portfolio mostly including sketchbooks of designed princess dresses, then progressed to creating more sophisticated, yet very incomprehensible film shorts while taking offered art classes since sixth grade. After moving to PRHS her sophomore year, she took a sculpture class and bought an SLR camera on a whim in order to take advantage of the wonderful artistic facilities at the high school. Mrs. Sanborn and Ms. Donovan have been motivating teachers, and helped her with developing ideas and skills into realities. Her inspirations have stemmed from the minimalistic style of Irving Penn and Ansel Adams and Andy Warhol’s interpretation of controversial subject matter of the 1960s, as well as the risk taking style of Robert Doisneau’s and Annie Leibovitz’s portraits. She hopes to continue art as a hobby, and use her skills in an engineering and human rights profession.
