I found this after finding Thomas Lee’s photograph. Lots of movement from the DSLR being carried around, in/out of focus, and deliberate rack focuses give a great raw feel.
Where would you go?
Thomas Lee has an interesting gallery The Olympic Eyes showing security cameras and security watching over the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
For the Olympics, Beijing has installed some 300,000 closed circuit cameras and spent $12-billion on related security. There were reportedly 100,000 policemen on Olympics duty, excluding volunteers and civilian recruits. The watch was a spectacle in itself.
All the security and surveillance upgrades have stayed after the Olympics, and the homeland security boom is spreading to other 660 designated “safe cities” across China. Many human rights groups have pointed out that the technology will be — and has been — directed at protests and dissenters.
