Exposed: WPO Student Focus Competition
‘Exposed’ - Creative Brief
Your image should draw on themes explored within the Tate Modern’s Exposed: Voyeurism, Surveillance and the Camera exhibition.
The exhibition explores issues around exposure, voyeurism and surveillance. It features a range of photographs created by well-known artists, photo-journalists, amateur photographers and those using technology like CCTV and camera phones.
WPO would like you to think about these different kinds of imagery and how we experience photography in different areas of art, photojournalism and everyday life. They want to see your creative response to these images and ideas and how you think the themes affect the world around you. Consider the increasing use of surveillance cameras, camera phones, and the circulation of images in the media and on the internet. Look around you and observe different ways we experience ‘exposure’ through imagery.
WPO is looking for a clear image to represent the above theme/s. Your photograph should record and communicate the essence of your idea.
