The Londoner's Guide to London
Looking at the nature of voyeurism, photos and surveillance, Exposed at Tate Modern examines the modern world of CCTV and paparazzi style imagery in photography.
Exposed at Tate Modern
Long lens photography, night vision cameras, infrared and CCTV all play their part in taking pictures of people without their knowledge, and this is at the heart of the Exposed exhibition. Subtitled Voyeurism, Surveillance and the Camera, Exposed takes a sneaky peak into the dark world of those that spy on others without their knowledge.
Erotica and celebrity
Focusing on the camera and it's ability to take you into the world of other people who are unaware of your presence, the themes of Exposed at Tate Modern are based on the erotic and the nature of celebrity. With the unseen photographer taking photos for his own personal gratification or for fiscal reward, the pictures on show reflect the nature of these dubious intents.
Private moments, public exposure
Highlighting images of clandestine meetings, candid situations and intimate meetings, the exhibition features a wide range of photographers that have used photography in unsual and inventive ways. Working with small or concealed cameras, the pictures in Exposed at Tate Modern explore the ways in which private images are put on show for public consumption everyday, whether they be of famous people or those caught on CCTV.
Everyone's a photographer
Given the rise in the availabilty of digital cameras and camera phones, nowadays everyone has the ability to take pictures wherever they are, whatever the circumstance. Inspired by this and the circulation of such paparazzi style images on the internet, Exposed at Tate Modern. shows artworks from artists like Guy Bourdin, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Walker Evans, Nan Goldin, Dorothea Large and Lee Miller, who all feature an element of voyeurism or surveillance in the photography and film.
Exposed: Voyeurism, Suerveillance and the Camera at Tate Modern, takes place from 10am - 5pm, Friday 28th May - Sunday 19th September 2010.
