I want to be a spy
An estimated 1.85 million CCTV cameras watch over Britain. London is, reportedly, the most spied-on city in the world. I want to be a Spy comments upon the nature of surveillance in our lens-based, image-obsessed culture. With the mass consumption of smartphones and tablet cameras over the last decade, 2013 has also seen the development of wearable cameras capable of taking 2000 photographs a day. This series uses a camera embedded into a pen to reflect upon the increased ease of personal surveillance. The images are of commuters on the London Underground, photographed in a manner whereby CCTV and voyeurism become inseparable.
