"Photography and the Limits of Privacy in Public"

Saturday, March 24 - 1:00PM to 1:45PM
Bayview Room

There has been a recent shift in our perception of photography and privacy. The view that our privacy is under threat has created an atmosphere of paranoia and fuelled demands for law reform in relation to photography in public space. As photographers and privacy advocates battle each other by opposing the right to privacy with the right to free expression, there seems little chance of finding a workable solution. This lecture seeks to address this issue by presenting findings from a large-scale research project that examines the changing connections between photography, privacy and public space.
