Camera club

SFMoMA's exhibition Exposed: Voyeurism, Surveillance, and the Camera Since 1870 presents “the shifting boundaries between seeing and spying, the private act and the public image.” As the exhibition blurb states, “Exposed poses compelling and urgent questions about who is looking at whom, and why.” Strangely it is the only exhibition on view at the museum that bans all photography!

Given that it's full of photographs by photographers who had used miniature cameras, side shooting and even shoe cameras to get their sneak pics, we felt compelled to join in. Fronting up to the ever-vigilant guards with our camera behind our backs, we took our own random pot shots.
