Óscar Monzón photographs drivers’ private moments
Invasive photography upsets people but it is raw and edgy and somehow compelling. Anna, a BAVA graduate, worked using invasive photography. It caused a lot of criticism and is still discussed, but no one forgets those images.
It is a form of surveillance. How is it acceptable for a CCTV camera to catch intimate moments but not for a photographer?
This article has an advert next to it for a photography course showing lighting set up and a model. This invasive work makes the studio work seem worse than trite. A model poses, it is tired and sad. A model is like a battery chicken caged and helpless, the images here are wild like a wildlife photographer catching a moment in the hidden life of something wild, a second caught in the lights.
