The Aperture Foundation, the photography department in the School of Art, Media and Technology at Parsons, and the Vera List Center for Art and Politics jointly present this panel discussion. Since its invention, the camera has been used to make images surreptitiously and to satisfy the desire to see what is hidden. Today, cameras on street corners, in shops, and public buildings silently record our every move, while web-based tools such as Google Earth adapt satellite technology to ensure that there is no escape from the camera's all-seeing eye. Moderated by Tom Vanderbilt, panelists Jill Magid and Trevor Paglen discuss how they use contemporary photographic technologies to examine issues of voyeurism, privacy law, security control and freedom of media.
