Medo das imagens

"The notion that there are malevolent spectators out there, looking to exploit the images the rest of us make and exhibit, has started to feed back into the everyday uses of photography, especially photography in public. (...)
This widespread paranoia exists at a time when the production and circulation of images, through the proliferation of camera phones and the Internet, have created a technological alternative to the traditional public sphere; through its lack of regulation, the 'digital commons' causes further panic among those authorities whose impulse is to monitor and surveil." (J.J. Charlesworth, "Fear of Photographs", in Art Review, Nov. 2009)
