Tiane Doan na Champassak's brilliant riff on surveillance, violence and privacy in the age of the internet. This powerful artist's book consists of found images-- taken from internet sources--of the riots that occurred in England between August 6-10, 2011. "Unlike photojournalistic representations of rioting, which tends to focus on the drama of violence, Looters represents the helpless gaze of the eye of power looking down upon the disorder and chaos which it was supposed to prevent."--from the often brilliant blog, propagandaphotos
