Surveillance Photography: Personal, Public and Profit
In an age of pervasive public monitoring and personal sharing, can individual privacy really exist? The advent of drone and smart-phone photography, metadata mining and wearable cameras has had an effect on anyone who walks down a street, uses email, posts a video or searches online for a companionship. This panel discussion—scheduled to coincide with the exhibition “Taking a Closer Look at Surveillance Culture through Photography,” at the Open Society Foundations’ New York location, and also inspired by “Surveillance.01,” an exhibition at the Independent Filmmaker Project—features artists, critics and industry professionals who engage with a wide variety of surveillance photography.
