About Barrett Johnson

For Barrett Johnson, inspiration is close to home. Near a hill behind his house, he stumbled upon the barbed wire that netted him first place in the youth category. Why barbed wire? "I thought it was really cool. I took a whole bunch of shots and picked out my favorite one."

Four years ago, his mother gave him a camera for Christmas, an older, manual Nikon with few bells and whistles. Johnson, 13, attends La Entrada Middle School and has lived in Menlo Park for about seven years.
