Before the morning. Late night Civic in pictures.

By johnboy - 16 June 2011 20

“babingtonfilms” has posted a piece explaining Andrew Babington’s photography project of late night photography in Civic.

There’s a lot of striking imagery there.

The book “Before The Morning” is available on Blurb.

Wonder how many release forms Andrew and his mates got signed off. This is nothing new or startling it happens in every town. and has been covered in the local press many times, I might save the $39.98 on the book for my dry cleaning bill when i run into these guys without cameras at 3am on Saturday.

Seems a tad condescending, IMO, for young people to be documenting their peers at their worst. It’s no secret that Civic, or anywhere else for that matter, gets ugly in the early hours. It’s only in the last 15 seconds they mention they do have some happy snaps to accompany all their cop chasing.

Yet another case of ANU students being better than everyone else.

Is the video supposed to encourage sales of the Book? If bad filming bad editing and bad camerawork sell books then young Andrew is on his way to a million copies sold…. but seriously it’s a shocker..

Probably none and as nobody is likely to be used to endorse anything for a commercial interest, it’s not required.

Interesting video. I wonder what the ACT law says about photography without consent. Apparently it’s legal…

Do your research.
It isn’t, never has been and probably never will be.

Was he ordered to take it down? I wanted to see the drunken teenage girls fighting in the street or whatever, with no risk to myself.

You think it’s illegal to photograph people in public?

Whoops. Need to edit that.
It’s NOT illegal to photograph people in public. That will teach me to skim read.

It is quite legal to walk down the street in a public area (not on private property) and video or photograph people AND sell the video. There are no release forms required.

True enough, though the information in your link above does make me wonder whether the subjects of the posted photos could argue that their likeness is being used for promotional purposes without their consent. They’re probably not famous enough to make anything of it, in any case.

The definition of commercial purposes is quite definitive if you continue to read the references. These people appearing in a book or on a video, while in the public eye, can do nothing about it, nor file claims against the publishers or author. Fame has absolutely nothing to do with it. They’re not being used to endorse a product. Images of them ARE the product.

The misunderstanding on the legalities of public photography and the use of images are widespread. The laws are pretty clear but the ignorance is rather resilient.
Your chances of being in Civic for five minutes without being filmed by security cameras somewhere are incredibly slim. What can you do about it? Wear a burqua or stay home.
