Posted in News

Having just recently graduated, Zhou Jia summarizes her two-year CCT experience with a photo, “American Cool”. The photo is featured on DC’s two online news portals, DCist (new window) and PoPVille (new window).

Zhou submitted the photo to the two sites’ flickr groups this week and it was selected by both of them. Zhou took this picture at a photography exhibition held at National Portrait Gallery back in March. The exhibition showcased individuals who brought innovation and style and created original personas without precedent in American culture. Zhou felt the same about her fellow CCT students, who all have a charismatic edge, are rebels of conventions, and are very “cool”. She believes this photo is the best summary of her CCT life at the nation’s capital.

Trained in journalist photography and dark room techniques, Zhou enjoys capturing life and telling stories with her camera. Check out her photos here (new window)!
