EC 9th grader Ethan Nashold won 1st Place for his shot “The Shops at Riverside,” in the New Jersey Monthly’s 2021 Cover Search Contest.
The monthly magazine featured Nashold’s work as well as the unique story behind the photo:
“Ethan Nashold, 14, a Waldwick ninth-grader, shot this picture just above a bench in the mall where his maternal grandfather, Richard Ardito, loved to sit. “He was a large man, so he liked to sit a lot,” Nashold says. They were together when he shot this picture. “It was the last time I was in the mall with my grandpa,” Nashold says. “He passed away about one year later, and I couldn’t see him because of Covid-19. This is definitely one of the best photos I’ve ever taken.”
Congrats to Ethan on this accomplishment, the recognition that you received and your eye for art!
