strictly no photography
Strictly no photography is a photo-sharing site for photographs taken where you are not allowed to take them. From the inside of the Kremlin to Kensington palace, from art galleries to war zones. Here you can see everything you’ve ever wanted to see that you’re not supposed to. There are pictures that range from the ordinary to the profound. Whatever the content or the quality though we think that each one stands as a little piece of art in itself, as a little expression of personal liberty.
To organize the world’s forbidden visual information and make it universally accessible and useful.
Our friendly team are always ready and willing to answer any questions you might have. You can contact us here.
What you can capture in the shot that’s not allowed is unique. It can be in the surreptitious nature of it’s blur taken at speed or on the move with a long exposure. It can be in the crooked framing, taken on the skew shot from the hip or over an onlooker’s shoulder. Shoot first then aim. Intriguing things seem to happen without the overriding intervention of the logical mind. The best shots are the ones loaded with the kind of flair and spontaneity that might never have been caught if you had thought too hard about it, if you’d had longer, if you were allowed. Oh, and remember to turn off the flash.
Maybe it’s my self image as a James Dean rebel coming out!
(Don’t you think I look a little like him?)
I remember seeing such a sign on the Goethals Bridge here in the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee. And, I thought “where do the get off making such a diktat”.
Push back. Snap a pic and send it it.
Viva la revolution!
