How the camera has made us all voyeurs
May 28th, 2010

Photography has made us think of distant watching and impersonality as normal.

Exposed: Voyeurism, surveillance and the camera, an exhibition that opens at Tate Modern in London May 28-3 October, before moving to the US later in the year.

Much of Exposed focuses on surveillance, including works by both amateur and press photographers, and images produced using automatic technology such as CCTV. The issues raised are particularly relevant in the current climate, with topical debates raging around the rights and desires of individuals, terrorism and the increasing availability and use of surveillance. Exposed confronts these issues and their implications head-on.
