Journalism visits LACMA

Journalism and AP English Language students took a field trip Thursday to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) to visit a new exhibition, Thomas Joshua Cooper: The World’s Edge. This special exhibit consists of years of landscape photography that he has captured from the farthest locations in the world, including Antartica, South Africa and Norway.

The classes discussed and did writing/drawing exercises that really seemed to help the students take in the beautiful scenes in the photos. Some of the photographs showcased are “The Atlas of Emptiness and Extremity, The World’s Edge, the Atlantic Basin Project” which he first embarked upon in 1987. For each location he traveled to he would take only on photograph using an old-fashioned box camera. He only developed the photo after he returned home.

I would recommend going to go visit the exhibition. Students 17 and under can get a free membership to LACMA through their NexGenLA program. Sign up at the museum and bring a guest for free.
