WATCHING YOU WATCH ME

WATCHING YOU WATCH ME

The project ”Watching you watch me” is discovering how a photographer can get as close as possible to others without acting illegal. I have taken portraits of people through a one-way mirror, when they are totally unaware of the camera inside. This way I got shots of people watching themselves. 

Since the images are taken in public spaces, I can publish them however I want to. At least in Sweden, where the laws are generous to journalists and artists. But in which forums and publications does the single individual feel insulted? ”Watching you watch me” is an effort to create debate on laws and ethics within the photographer’s role.
