“Public Eye: 175 Years of Sharing Photography” is a look back at photographs from the past, and a look at some of the platforms we use to share photographs today, such as the use of streets as a venue for photography, and moving forward with this art form into the risky business of loosing our privacy. The exhibit explores various ways photography has been shared and made public. Two categories that caught our attention were ‘Stereogranimator: View, Create and Share 3D Images and On Broadway, which represents digital traces of life collected along the thirteen miles of Broadway. “Public Eye: 175 Years of Sharing Photography” is located at the New York Public Library, Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, Fifth Avenue at 42nd Street. The exhibit ends January 3.
