[Extract] “It must be known of the ‘kodaker’ has not kept pace with the development of the ‘kodak.’ It is difficult for some people to understand that there are those who have a strong prejudice against being promiscuously ‘snapped at’ through a camera,” opined an article from the Ladies Home Journal in 1900. The invention and release of the Kodak camera by New York entrepreneur George Eastman in 1888 heralded a new generation of photographic cameras, intensified debates about the unauthorized capture and circulation of people’s (particularly women’s) images at a time of shifting and unstable gender roles, and contributed to the recognition of a right to privacy in the United States, the first in the common law world.
