My thesis work examines the dynamic relationship between artist and subject within the contemporary urban environment.  Employing a combination of documentary/street photography and digital manipulation, the project looks at  ways in which people react to having their photograph taken, candidly, in public, by a stranger, and without their consent.  In this current era of ubiquitous institutional surveillance and social media over-­‐saturation, the project examines peoples’ reaction to the presence of the image-­‐maker within the dense urban landscape.
