This Way For Fun
Ceremony Press — Reino Unido
Whilst the images themselves are intriguing, this series also manages to capture something outside of the frame. ‘This Way For Fun!’ is able to represent the state of mind of a nation. The security conscious individuals who set up cameras to keep watch over banal scenes manage to communicate their fear, paranoia and insecurities to the viewer. This series also outlines the many opportunities for voyeurism with new technology. Photography has often been described as a ‘window on the world’, maybe ‘cameras of the world’ would be appropriate to describe the sheer scale of cameras available that Brook was able to utilise, unbeknown to the individuals who installed them.
Please pay attention as you travel through these pages. These seemingly quiet and distant images of an America devoid of people, captured using surveillance technology, may appear banal on the surface but they reveal far more than there is to see here. Enjoy the ride!
