This work highlights the issues of our right to freedom of movement and privacy within society. No information on a person or location has been acknowledged, the images represent our perceived anonymity in areas that we frequent or live. Gatherings are absent emphasising the individual within their environment and highlighting that even our personal residences are surveyed for safety or more ominous reasons. Through the lens, we are not anonymous, actions are monitored and noted. For the observer we are the observed, when observed we are no longer unknown, we can become the recognised. These photographs are intended to unnerve through their obvious invasion of privacy, the viewer becomes the observer yet can recognise themselves in the contexts documented.
