This photo is so "meta" lens culture: A photo of a government-owned surveillance camera in front of a giant billboard photo of a baby's eye, with the billboard promoting the idea of photographing your kids with your mobile phone camera and sending them via the phone carrier's system to share with grandma and grandpa far away...
The photographer, David Dunnico, is just one of the fascinating people I met at the always stimulating photo festival and international portfolio review sessions at Rhubarb-Rhubarb in Birmingham UK. I met lots and lots of interesting people, and I'll report back on many more of my findings and delightful discoveries over the next few days and weeks.
In the meantime, check out Dunnico's Flickr photostream of all things CCTV in the UK, plus his website. Dunnico's note about this photo: "Council owned camera and advertising hoarding for the mobile phone network 3. Lever Street, Manchester. This was the first photograph I took in this series."
