Prisoner of the Privacy
Project info

My project, developed throughout 2009, wants to show the conditioning street photographers receive from norms, but also stereotypes that the laws on privacy have brought in people's minds. The search for poses preventing a face from being recognizable, unnatural poses, poses hiding eyes, but which still attempt to tell with great difficulty the simple life surrounding us daily: this was the main guideline for the project.
Henry Cartier Bresson spoke about moments showing a world. Is this possible and compatible with requests for a photographic consent form? It's a work attempting to say "look what I may show if I follow the laws, even with all the possible originality and imagination". What could photography narrate without the possibility of describing everyday life through faces and actions of the common people? This work is my cry for help...
