This photograph is an image of a hunting camera used by rural landowners to protect their property from human and non-human trespassers. This photograph proves that citizens are repurposing surveillance technologies for their own security and usage. The research that contextualizes this photograph argues that CCTV cameras and contemporary surveillance practices have inspired citizens to use unique methods of surveillance for their own needs.
