Caught on Film: Photography from the Collection

Oct 8 - Dec 29, 2013
Boca Raton Museum of Art

Investigating the shifting boundaries between seeing and spying - the private act and the public image, Caught on Film explores how cameras have transformed the nature of looking as it easily crosses the line into surveillance and invasion of privacy.

With historical and contemporary photographs, this stimulating exhibition presents some of the camera’s most unsettling uses including surveillance, celebrity stalking, and documentation of disaster. Caught on Film poses compelling questions about who is looking at whom and why by photographers such as Gregory Crewdson, Robert Doisneau, and Edward Steichen.
