Editorial Reviews

Review

"A profound collection of images we have all seen but prefer not to discuss. . . . The images presented here are not for the faint of heart. This is a fascinating and disturbing volume. . . . The book provides a captivating jumping-off point for intellectual debate."—Amanda Quintenz-Fiedler, Photographer's Forum
(Amanda Quintenz-Fiedler Photographer's Forum)

Format: Hardcover
EXPOSED: VOYEURISM, SURVEILLANCE, AND THE CAMERA SINCE 1870 is the official catalogue for a massive photography exhibition created with the collaboration of the Tate Modern where it is now on exhibit in London and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art where it opens in October of this year, moving on to the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis in the spring of 2011. It is an ingenious concept for an exhibition curated by Sandra S. Phillips of SFMOMA who also contributes the fine essay LOOKING OUT, LOOKING IN: VOYEURISM AND ITS AFFINITIES FROM THE BEGINNING OF PHOTOGRAPHY that opens this well-designed sophisticated catalogue/art book.

Phillips begins her examination of the subject 'We cannot blame the camera for what it has done to us; nevertheless, it has made certain human predilections much easier to satisfy.' She then provides a strong history of the human desire to see things forbidden, whether by hiding in the dark to see people, events, and passions meant to remain secret, or by using the instrument that made these urges possible - the development of the camera and its early uses in the Civil War to the present. 'The exhibition examines five areas of voyeuristic photography: street photography; the sexually explicit (or implicit) pictures we normally associate with voyeurism; celebrity stalking; photographs of death and violence; and surveillance in its many forms.

I saw the exhibit for Exposed at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, MN. The exhibit was wonderful. The book is disappointing. The book is weirdly formatted, which results in small pictures...and the pictures are supposed to be the point. In the exhibit, descriptions and history of each image appears alongside the picture, which means ease of understanding and appreciation of the picture. But in the book, all written material is at the beginning of each chapter, resulting in a lot of flipping back and forth to see what image the written material is referring to. All in all, I'm disappointed. Though some of the charm of the exhibit is captured in the book, not enough to take you back to that place and the strength and power of the photos.

The book came sealed in plastic, in perfect condition. This is exactly how I remember the exhibit of the same name at the SF Moma. I actually prefer the way the book is organized with the writing in a separate section than the photos. Amazing, amazing work shown in this exhibit book.

I normally don't write reviews because i feel there a waste of time but now i feel that they're a necessity. I waited almost 3 week for this book to arrive which i found interesting because dusher1988 lives in the same state as me so it should take less time then that. When i purchased the book it said the condition was new and as soon as i opened the book the i realized that the front cover was torn off. Not pleased at all.
