Cheerleading Senior Portrait

“Not Forgotten: The Yorktown Seniors of 2020.” As I’ve said before, I don’t have a senior at Yorktown; mine’s still got a year to go. So I relied upon the help of the first few students I photographed to inch the project along. And every one of them said “you gotta get Alex!” Who was this mystery Alex who everyone seemed to adore?!? I’ll tell you: he is the captain of the Yorktown cheerleaders, a squad he’s been in for four years. He has an amazingly gentle spirit, and yet the second I asked him to jump, the cheerleader emerged instantly. He will be attending McGill University in Montreal where he hopes to study French. I give you: Alex I.
