Advanced Photography students go to MOCA

By Lara Sokoloff

Advanced Photography I classes traveled to the Robert Frank exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art Oct. 5 to take photos for a class project.

In the past, photography classes have gone to the J. Paul Getty Museum for inspiration.

However, this year, The Robert Frank exhibition at MOCA is the only exhibition currently containing the full set of 83 prints from Frank’s revolutionary photography book, “The Americas.”

“It was important for the students to note the order and coherence of the collection, for the 83 prints were a small part of a larger collection acquired over two years,” photography teacher Nancy Popp said.
