    I just started my exam for my art A-Level and the topic for the Photography section is Anti Social.

    I need to find some photographers who have used anti social as a theme in their photo's.. things like drinking, smoking, drugs, prostitution..etc.

    I found one photographer, who I e-mailed to ask would he be willing to let me use some of his work for research and he refused, and was quite rude.

    Im at a loss and research makes up 40% of my grade!

    Any help would be VERY appreciated!

    When I studied Photography theory and history we didn't need to get anyone's permission to use images. You do, however, need to acknowledge them and credit the images.

    Is this anti-social in the hard strict sense? Or can it be a play on words/metaphorical?

    This seem like the course of action to take JDT. Simply borrow the images and make reference to actual photographer who "owns" them. :)

    When ever i did an art project i always liked to put as big a spin on the title as i could, i'd recommend not sticking with the standard 'anti social' ideas. I agree with everyone else about the pictures. Just use them and credit the guy.

    Hate to be punny, but it does seem like this guy fit the bill--very anti social!

    Noboyushi Araki has done lots of photography on prostitution if that can work...(WARNING: many images are not work safe in goole image search)

    Wiki

    May be a bit much though :eek:

    I agree with the thinking outside the box thing, that's what I'm doing for my GCSE art at the moment...I hope.

    I quite agree - surely the examiners are expecting you to use a bit of initiative and imagination?

    Television = anti-social
    iPods = Anti-social
    Personal electronic games = Anti-social

    How about juxtaposing scenes of people interacting, against scenes of people doing isolating activities.
