Candid Photography

 

the taking of pictures for still photographs, motion pictures, and television films without the subject’s being aware that the camera is trained on him. Candid photography was first used in motion pictures during the 1920’s, when Dziga Vertov, a director of documentary films, proposed and put into practice the idea of “taking life by surprise.” With the appearance of highly sensitive films and lightweight, noiseless cameras during the 1960’s, candid photography became popular throughout the world.
