SMILE! YOU'RE ON CAMERA!

An exhibition of photographs by Noel Hodnett

November 14, 2013 - January 31, 2014

This body of work focuses on the extent to which the invasion of privacy is encroaching on our everyday lives. Every image in this exhibition, however diverse, playful or seemingly innocuous, portrays some element of surveillance. "SMILE! YOU'RE ON CAMERA!" no longer merely refers to one's unwitting participation in some dubious candid camera prank, the phrase has now taken on more ominous overtones.

The increased use of re-commissioned military drones, high-resolution cameras, GPS enabled devices and covert listening devices have become evermore pervasive. As Edward Snowden recently revealed, it has now reached a stage where everyone can be reasonably sure that we are, in some way or another, being monitored 24/7...all in the name of National Security. These photographs were taken on a recent trip to Nevada and Arizona.
