Photographing the Photographer

Outside_the_Tate_Modern

Recently in London, I saw an exhibition that examined photography's cultural uses from surveillance to eroticism.

After we had finished looking at the exhibition we decided to sit and eat at the cafe in the Tate Modern. While there, I noticed this guy whip out his DSLR, which happened to have a huge Telephoto Lens on it, he fired off a few shots using it, chimped them quickly, then fired off a couple more.

Of course I couldn't help myself and had to whip out my iPhone, then using the zoom feature, zoom in on him taking pictures outside an exhibition that examined Photography's role as a surveillance tool. Now is it just me or is this ironic, or a double negative even? A person photographing, being photographed outside a major exhibition on photography and surveillance?

New Publication

I have published yet another book, this time an e-book, available for sale from lulu.com. I chose lulu, because they assign free ISBN numbers to e-publications, so have a look buy it, if you are so inclined, I may eventually publish it as a hard copy book as well we'll see?

I recently purchased this book,"What Can We Believe Where?: Photographs of the American West (Yale University Art Gallery)" (Robert Adams)

Another fabulous and humbling collection of the most wonderful images, I've been privileged to experience. Yet another addition to my growing collection.
