BeSeeingYou consists of multiple projects dealing with photography without permission, surveillance and privacy. I photographed strangers through glass store windows, to catch them at the moment they realize that an unknown person is taking their picture. I point my camera at the cameras that are watching me, lurking above my head, and photograph the buildings, walls and streets where they hide in plain sight. The frequent appearance of surveillance cameras on every genre of television show, normalizes the presence of surveillance in our lives. Warning signs, CCTV suspects from the news, and even my own reflection caught in the dome of the camera are some of the additional parts of this long-term project, telling stories of the way that surveillance that has invaded our streets and our homes, impacting our privacy. I make these photographs to raise questions that come from the claustrophobic sense of being constantly observed.
