 Secret photography involves a person or persons being

unaware that they are being intentionally photographed. It is sometimes called "covert photography", but this is a term used mostly among professional investigators.

This type of photography may happen in a variety of situations, such as:

Fixed or mobile closed-circuit television surveillance in public areas.
Stalking by photographers of celebrities.
Hidden camera investigative journalism.
Voyeuristic photography, often accompanied by erotic arousal in the photographer.
During industrial espionage.
During intelligence gathering by police or private investigators.
By vigilantes.
By political protesters or activists.
By academics such as ethnographic researchers or participant observer sociologists.
As a prank, eg: from a friend's mobile camera phone.

Sometimes normal cameras are used, but the photographer is concealed. Sometimes the camera itself is disguised or concealed. Some obvious element of concealment (or great distance) is generally needed to make such photography fall under the category of 'secret photography' rather than street photography or documentary photography.

It has been in use by British police since intelligence gathering on the suffragette movement in the 1900s. Some classic early U.S. street photography - such as that of Paul Strand on the Lower East Side - was obtained by fixing a second "dummy lens" to the camera, whereas the real shot was taken from the side. Although spy cameras small enough to fit inside a pocket-watch had existed since the 1880s, since the 1950s advances in miniaturisation and electronics has greatly aided the ability to conceal miniature cameras, and the quality and affordability of tiny cameras (often called "spy cameras" or subminiature cameras) has now greatly increased. Some consumer digital cameras are now so small that in previous decades they would have qualified as "spy cameras", and digital cameras of 5 megapixels or more are now being embedded in some mobile camera phones.
