Photo of the Day – iheartstreetphotography

 

April 8, 2010

We went to check this iheartstreetphotography exhibit out. A little disappointing.

My flat mates and I set out to check this iheartstreetphoto exhibit  out. It was a little disappointing as you can see by the photograph. Not many people, just calming standing around stairing at the 4 foot by 4 foot square projection.

But the message is key!

I Heart Street Photo’s Twitter describes itself as, “An exhibition of new street photography in light of the impending government restrictions on photography in public places.”

I agree with Heart Street Photo.

According to their Web site, they are about the celebration of street photography.

I agree even more.

What is unique about I Heart Street Photo is the fact that photographers are being cracked down upon from taking photos – in public.

A Sunday Times article describes the situation many photographers – even tourists –  are facing in London and the world today. The article highlights how the loss of public or street photography can take away the necessary documentation of today’s current culture.

Where does the line between public and ‘privacy’ end?
