Agree with the “gross privacy violation” sentiment, but on the other hand this is supposed to be art, and I would say it is successful in provoking a reaction. Hopefully it makes the average person more conscious about what they make blatantly visible in public. I was expecting some long range zoom lens used based on the headline, but it was taken with just a regular iPhone! Anyone within 5 feet could have read that. You can’t count on taboos to protect your privacy.
