Exposed at the Tate Modern


The Tate Modern’s new exhibit, Exposed: Voyeurism, Surveillance and the Camera offers “a fascinating look at pictures made on the sly, without the explicit permission of the people depicted”.

With the curatorial theme of the “unseen photographer”  Exposed presents 250 works of photography and film from the late nineteenth century to the present day exploring subjects of voyeurism, eroticism, celebrity, conflict and surveillance.  From Weegee’s legendary photograph of Marilyn Monroe  to Brassaï’s Secret Paris, the exhibit exposes private and candid moments to public scrutiny using methods such as concealed cameras and CCTV.  Exposed plays with the notion of the division between the public and private sphere and  the implication of the artist and viewer as voyeur.

Exposed: Voyeurism, Surveillance and the Camera is on display until October 3rd, 2010 and features photographs from Guy Bourdin, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Philip Lorca DiCorcia, Walker Evans, Robert Frank, Nan Goldin, Lee Miller, Helmut Newton and Man Ray.
