Surveillance Photography: Personal, Public, Profit

In the age of pervasive public monitoring and personal sharing, can individual privacy really exist? The advent of drone and smart-phone photography, metadata mining and wearable cameras has had an effect on anyone who walks down a street, uses email, posts a video or searches online for companionship. This panel discussion, featuring an educator, critic, and industry professionals who engage with a wide variety of surveillance photography issues will address what we should and should not fear, share and be aware of. On one hand, surveillance technology is used as an instrument to watch, document, record and potentially infringe on human rights and encroach on our essential freedoms and on the other hand the latest technology is being used to better communities with accurate data required to influence positive community development and change. The issue of who owns, controls, and/or profits from our (often very personal) visual information will be addressed.
