NY Judge Approves Artist’s “Right” To Photograph Children Through Windows
#1
Quote:Keep your shades down, New York.

A Manhattan judge ruled this week that artistic freedom trumps the rights of parents who don’t want their kids secretly photographed through the windows of their homes.

Judge Eileen Rakower tossed a lawsuit brought by two parents against a Tribeca artist who snapped pictures of their children through their apartment windows as part of a controversial exhibition this year.

“What are the implications here for parents?” said a friend of the plaintiffs yesterday. “You can just have people shooting your kids in their bedrooms, and nothing can be done about it? You can’t just hide behind the word ‘art’ to behave poorly.”

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

The guy's work is really good. The people aren't actually identifiable as specific people.

It's basically what you'd see if you stood and looked out the window of any big-city apartment.

You can find some of the images via Google.

A lot of normally taboo things are acceptable as art. As a matter of fact, if they come after our guns, we ought to just have them all framed and hung on our walls then sue the government for suppression of artistic expression.

Wow, judges ruling over and over that we have no right to privacy. Makes one wonder why all the hub-bub about NSA and wiretapping.

You know.....just went to look at his work. Nice....but I think he should keep to public shots, or ask permission first. You can't just take pictures of people in their homes and then sell them like that. That's like a high-end version of being a peeping Tom. Not cool.

It doesn't matter if his photos are the most beautiful on earth. If the person doesn't want to be photographed while in their private residence they have that right. Having an open window or open shade does not constitute acquiescence.

It does in fact. Your allowing yourself to be viewed and hence photographed.

Isn't that what I just said?

So you can't call the cops on a peeping Tom since it's your fault the shades are up?

Then the government has the right to do and monitor anything it wants whenever it wants, since you live in the country run by the government and you're allowing yourself to live under its control.

And if leave your door unlocked, then the police or anyone else can walk in freely because if you didn't want company it would have been locked.

Oh yeah, and if you use the phone or internet then it's perfectly fine for the government to monitor it because you're using lines that the government helped put in place and since your license agreement likely allows the company you purchased service from to manage it the way they see fit then them handing it all over to government officials on a whim is legit and acceptable.
