2005-2006 MOCA apprenticeship program
museum of contemporary art, los angeles
by Michael Yee
This is the story of the 16 apprentices at MOCA"s program in the 2005-06 school year, as told and seen through the camera of apprentice Michael Yee. Every year, the education department picks about 15-16 high school students from around the Los Angeles area to meet weekly, talk about art, and plan an teen night event. Michael Yee, armed with a Canon PowerShot, sought to photograph every aspect of that.
I am an alumnus of Cal State Long Beach and the former photo editor Daily 49er newspaper. I specialize in sunsets at the Bolsa Chica Wetlands, press assignments, and covering long-term projects such as jobs, classes, and internships in photo books. My setup includes a 20D, 17-55mm, and the SX110 pocket camera.
