Watched and Watching/satellite photos of earth
This is the subject of our times. The other day on NPR there was a story about Army surveillance from drones and satellites. How watching on a screen bombings, beheadings, beatings…even at a remove take a huge emotional toll on those soldiers who while not in combat provide essential information to the troops on the ground. Years ago Ai We We created a sculpture of a surveillance camera as a comment on ‘big brother is watching’. These are now ubiquitous… I find these photos by Mishka Henner and Andrew Hammerand really intriguing and very different. Henner is first/ Hammerand second.
