13th Annual Palo Alto Weekly Photo Contest
About Adrien Fehr
Fehr, 24, had never been to the Stanford Pow Wow before, but
found himself sitting on a straw mat at dusk, captivated by the
dancing. An insight gained that evening lead to the creation
of his first-place portrait.
"There was a lot of energy," Fehr said. "But
at the same time, some people were part of the culture but not
part of the event."
Fehr saw that some people did not feel the same energy, but instead seemed withdrawn
and reflective. His subject illustrated these feelings throughout the entire
"He was one of the best dressed, but always seemed pensive," Fehr
Fehr, a graduate student of Applied Physics at Stanford, has lived in Palo Alto for 3 years.
