“Weep for the Departed,” a photograph by East Islip High School sophomore Rebecca Bast, was recently chosen for “2017 America” at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, a show that displayed photography from high schools all across the United States.

“Rebecca is a very bright and creative student,” said her photography teacher, Joy Taylor. “I’m really proud of her and excited that she could be a part of this.”

Bast, who attended the gallery showing with her family at the opening reception at SVA, is currently attending Sunday Live classes at Fashion Institute of Technology, studying principles of design in FIT’s pre-college program. She hopes to continue her studies in the arts at East Islip.
