DescriptionStreet photographs, such as those by artists Gary Winogrand and Ned Bosnick, represent yet another way that humans reproduce their perceptual world using cameras. While these photographs were not taken surreptitiously, there is also no reason to believe that the photographers asked permission to take them, and indeed a few of the images on display here seem more suited to a spy movie than a portrait studio. They remind us that, just by being a human out in public, we find ourselves subject to participating in other people’s representations. Our visible bodies can be made into images and data both with and without our knowledge.
