A Cherokee County School District student’s photography and commentary on his generation has been published by the New York Times!
Cherokee High School junior Noah Lee is one of 36 high school students whose photographs were selected from thousands entered across the country at the media company’s request. The Times asked teens to “analyze media and adult stereotypes about their generation — then take photos to counter them.”
The 36 photos are posted on the company’s website here and will be published in the Sunday print edition of the newspaper.
Noah is a student in art teacher Shanna Coulter’s photography class. His photo is of classmate, Summer Hodgkinson, who is holding over her eyes two smartphones showing images of eyes on their screens.
Art teacher Shanna Coulter congratulates student Noah Lee on his photo being published by the New York Times.His artist’s commentary, which accompanies the photo, states: “We only see things through our phones. Our generation is so into technology that we don’t see life around that. All day every day we text or post on social media.”
