This is outrageous!

Just because somebody has a camera allows them to be a Peeping Tomartist[3] in the name of art?

New York Post[4] reports keep your shades down, New York.

A Manhattan judge ruled this week that artistic freedom trumps the rights of parents who don’t want their kids secretly photographed through the windows of their homes.

Judge Eileen Rakower tossed a lawsuit brought by two parents against a Tribeca artist who snapped pictures of their children through their apartment windows as part of a controversial exhibition this year.

“What are the implications here for parents?” said a friend of the plaintiffs yesterday. “You can just have people shooting your kids in their bedrooms, and nothing can be done about it? You can’t just hide behind the word ‘art’ to behave poorly.”

Artist Arne Svenson photographed his Greenwich Street neighbors for an exhibit titled “The Neighbors.”

Making use of their floor to ceiling windows, he captured his innocent subjects engaged in a host of mundane activities, from cleaning the floor to playing with their kids.

I bet if somebody was having an abortion, the photog would be arrested!
