Street photography and the law

I love street photography, wonderfully candid images that capture the raw energy of a place and the diverse people who inhabit it.

But what are the legal ramifications for us as photographers when it comes to shooting spontaneous photographs of private lives in public spaces?

If you’re interested to know more, diarise the following two short talks – you just need to make it to the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne:

The cutting look: Art, photography and public spaces
Presented by Dr Melissa Miles, lecturer, Theory of Art & Design, Monash University

The legal side: The restrictions of photography in public spaces
Presented by Dr Kate MacNeill, senior lecturer and coordinator, Arts & Cultural Management, The University of Melbourne

When: 19 February 2012, 2:00pm til 3:30pm
Information & bookings
