Sally Henderson was the receptionist at Dannet Academy, one of Connecticut’s foremost private high schools. A photographer unknown to the school had offered his services to convert the Academy’s 40,000 photographic negatives to the digital format, in a permanent database—entirely school-owned. The photographic negatives, which covered on-campus student life from the 1960’s through the 1990’s, had been retained by the school in an inaccessible format—and the administrators were close to making a decision on the offer to digitize the images. The entire Dannet staff was giddy at the prospect of opening up this facet of the school’s history—at virtually no cost—but Sally couldn’t share their excitement. Her friend in the school’s library made note of the photographer’s computer searches, which had been anything but wholesome. Can Sally stop the photographer from having access to thousands of images of teenage children?
