Photography field trip

SF MOMA trip
I was a might depressed that out of the large group that promised to come on our field trip to San Francisco's Museum of Modern Art only two actually showed up. But maybe quality is better than quantity. We looked at the Henri Cartier-Bresson retrospective as well as "Exposed: Voyeurism, Surveillance, and the Camera Since 1870." Both were filled with interesting work. We even had time to go through the Anniversary Show. Extra credit for attendees, shame and frowns for the ones who bailed on us.

2D design values

closeup value assignment, originally uploaded by losmedanosart. This extreme detail is from Shelly Boyd's self portrait. Students in Dawn Black's 2D design class painted nine different values on separate pieces of paper, cut varied shapes and then assembled them into portraits. Shelly's whole piece is below.

Inside Out: Self portraits based on contemporary graffiti and stencil art

LMC art instructor Judi Pettite took advantage of blank plywood construction walls at the college to exhibit her painting students work. Each piece is a stencil based self portrait on 24 x 24 inch plywood, screwed on to the temporary walls. The work, though inspired by Banksy Shepard and Swoon, reflects each students personal story.



Books by photography students

The final project for LMC Photo II students is to create a book on a unified concept. These small posters are mock-ups — hung from string with extra-cute tiny clothespins on level 3 of the college complex— of the larger posters that might appear in bookstores promoting their self-published books.
