Data protection is a good thing, however there may be unpleasant surprises in the GDPR. Photos are data, that is personal data. So many photographers are worried – for instance: is street photography illegal from now on?
Here are two voices – a photographer and a business oriented approach to images.
A photographer’s concerns
Below you hear a photographers concerns. For instance can you take a group photo at a party? Actually such a heinous action may be a crime.
Marketing and photos
Below you’ll find a business oriented approach. It’s mostly about marketing and photos. So if you use Mailchimp or similar for marketing it is very relevant for marketers.
Perhaps even this blog post is an evil criminal offence. You see pictures here. Am I allowed to share the links? In some ways the GDPR has good intensions, however parts of the GDPR is lawyer BS.
For multimedia designers there are many concerns here:
- How about images from APIs such as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest?
- Will street photo be illegal in the EU?
- What are the consequences for street, event and similar photographers?
- Surveilance cameras?
At the moment certain countries use the GDPR as an excuse for censorship. Photographs of public spaces, such as monuments may be restricted. So what started as good intensions for data protection created monsters – as is often the case in legislation.

Torsdag – fredag mødes ledere og undervisere på Multimediedesigneruddannelsen i Odense for at arbejde med den nye studieordning for uddannelsen.
I’m at the JsConf in Reykjavik. The venue is the fantastic Harpa, with wonderful artwork by Olafur Eliasson. We live in the hotel with the Sky Lounge just across the street.
Today art and code mixed into an amazing creative cocktail. I cannot wait to experiment with the creative libraries from these wizards of code.
There were several talks on JavaScriot as a creative tool. Raisa Cuevas introduced to augmented reality, and she introduced several creative tools, such as:
Paint Splatter: The making of an interactive artwork
Halldór Eldjárn & Þórður Hans Baldursson introduced the code behind the interactive artwork decorating Harpa this week. On the website http://paint.jsconf.is/ you can choose the colors on the building. They told about the work, and how they wrote the creative code.
“make things that makes things”
You can follow Kate’s work here: http://galaxykate.com/
Among the tools in her toolbox was https://threejs.org/
The first keynote speaker was a nodejs talk, along the lines of this: “version 1.0.4 of XX is not there yet. Please google”. My mind drifted away, but perhaps there were hidden gems for the Nodejs adepts. But at the end of the day JsConf gave many ideas for creative code.
Code is poetry.
