The project ”Watching you watch me” is discovering how a photographer can get as close as possible to others, without acting illegal. I have taken portraits of people through a mirror, when they are totally unaware of my camera being on the inside. This way I get captions of people watching themselves.Since the pictures are taken in public space, I can publish them however I want to. But where and when does the single individual feel insulted?
See the photos and hear Moa talk about them on Scanpix web (in Swedish)
