Galerie Fotoland’s latest exhibition is a collection of digital designs that transform security-surveillance footage into stylized patterns. The events depicted are from crimes around the world, some high profile and some minor.
In Lee’s words: “Do security cameras and other safety imaging devices make us feel more secure? Are their detailed and time-stamped freeze frame images faithful witnesses to the aftermath of violent events? This series of digital collages are inspired by images of violence captured on security cameras. As the security cameras attempt to reveal the hidden identity of the perpetrators, their ubiquity also mask the fear that we all have come to accept in our daily lives.”
