DESCRIPTION

Exposed presents over two hundred photographic works, from the late nineteenth century to the present day, offering an illuminating and provocative perspective on subjects both iconic and taboo.

Images selected are by well-known artists and photo-journalists, as well as amateur photographers and those using automated technologies such as CCTV. Among the key issues will be the power struggle between those with the authority over image production (artists, authors or the state) and the rights and desires of individuals. This relationship is under increasing pressure,both from the escalating use of surveillance, and the advance of small, portable digital cameras in mobile phones.
