Daily photos, 2012-2015:
A frame-by-frame walk through high school
Beginning in Minnehaha Academy’s Centennial year, 2012-13, Maddie Binning (’15) documented every day of her experience as a high-school sophomore, junior and senior through photography. She published one photo per school day on Redhawksonline and compiled her photos in the videos shown below. To view a stream of individual photos, click here.
Not only was Maddie honored in journalism contests for specific photos, but she was also named a Sweepstakes winner (first place overall) by the Quill and Scroll Society in the Photo Slideshow category. For her cumulative efforts as photographer, writer and editor-in-chief of The Talon newspaper, she was named Minnesota’s 2015 Journalist of the Year. After graduating from Minnehaha, Maddie has continued her education in the journalism program at Ryerson University in Toronto.
Maddie’s daily photos from 2012 to 2015 provide a student’s perspective on daily life in an American high school and will serve in future years as a visual archive for her contemporaries.
