Gonzalo Bénard: the unknown webcam

B Shot by a stranger is a sociological photographic project that ended up as a book purchased online at Blurb.
The photographs were captured by Bénard through a webcam with which he filmed in a kind of voyeuristic game, young volunteers strangers who have lent to be immortalized in their daily activities. The result is a collection of private moments shared by young male loners with the photographer, in a double game of silence / consent, the desire to be seen where it mixes with the distance from the eye that observes them without judgment. A discussion on new media network, on the need for young people to discover about the world, about the fall of the ethics of private and erotic poses hidden in these fleeting and random.
