"Tenderloin" is a series of close up video portraits of eccentric people in the Tenderloin area in San Francisco. The images are taken from a distance with a powerful zoom lens. They appear to intrude into the individual's personal moments and address issues of privacy and intimacy in contemporary camera-controlled societies.
The spectator knows that he is being filmed as well. There is a camera and a spotlight focused on him, and although he doesn't see the direct result of his being filmed, he be- comes gradually aware that his movements are being recorded and how they directly influence the projection. He is physically able to manipulate the video sequence by moving back and forth to determine the direction the portrayed figure is looking.
