Gifts to the World by Juliet Ercolano

JULIET ERCOLANO, PHOTOGRAPHER

When asked to describe herself, Juliet always answers the same way: “I am a people person.” Now a senior in high school, she plans to study psychology or human services in college so she can become a therapist or counselor to either elderly people or kids who have been adopted trans-racially.  Her favorite pastimes, other than hanging out with friends, are photography, dance and listening to music. Her iPod is running out of room!

Juliet has been accepted to her first choice school–Elon University.  She will be attending Elon next fall.

Last summer, Juliet exhibited her photographs at the School of Creative and Performing Arts’ showcase at the Parsons The New School of Design in New York City, and served as a counselor-in-training for girls ages 9 to 12 at Holt International‘s Adoptee Camp, which brings together several hundred adopted kids each summer in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

DWLA loves Juliet’s photography for both its technique and radiant expression of Juliet’s own interest in people, human emotion, dance, art, and music.   She specializes in capturing intense moments of human communication and focus.
