About Cleo Leung
When Cleo Leung's English project required her
to analyze an Emily Dickinson poem and express its meaning through
a different medium, the Menlo School junior chose photography.

"I picked a poem about the innocence of youth and
how that changes," Leung said.
Leung juxtaposed photographs of her young cousin with images of her father looking
"I had that one really, really good image of my cousin," Leung
said. She cut out her cousin, inverted the image's colors on
her computer and played
around with it for fun.
"It's one of my lesser known hobbies. I really enjoy taking photographs
and playing with them on my computer. But it's something I do for myself and
I haven't had much formal training in," Leung said.
