IMS students explore world of photography

If you could go anywhere in the world to photograph the sights and sounds of a place, where might you go?

During a recent unit on photography, eighth-grade yearbook students at Incline Middle School captured the sights and sounds of the school and Incline Beach. Creatively answering the questions, “Where are the centers of activity in our community and school? What sights, sounds and activities might be encountered there?”, each student identified an area, then documented the moments, stories and images it offered.

The project allowed the students to discover that photography is the key to engaging readers with a publication, said IMS art teacher Mary Mann-Gilbert.
