A New York City judge has sided with photographer Arne Svenson in a suit brought by a Tribeca family who were photographed in their home from across the street for his exhibit called The Neighbors. “While it makes the Fosters cringe to think that their private lives and images of their small children can find their way into the public forum of an art exhibition, there is no redress under the current laws of the state of New York,” Rakower wrote. The Fosters sued to get possession of the pictures but Justice Eileen Rakower ruled Thursday that the right of Arne Svenson to take photos and said she did not believe the case violated state civil rights law. “Art is considered free speech and is therefore protected by the First Amendment,” Rakower wrote. And honestly, the only reason the Foster’s identity was revealed was by their bringing a lawsuit – had they kept quiet, no one would have known it was them. Duh.
