The idea of privacy is becoming a hot topic with the pervasiveness of social media; Philadelphia-based artist and photographer Anna Ladd addresses the fact that many people announce to a world of anonymous strangers their deepest innermost thoughts via these online networks. Through her photo project, "Things I Told the Internet, But Didn’t Tell My Mom,' Anna Ladd displays some of her more intimate revelations through the medium of bunting.

Strung in everyday backyard locations, Anna Ladd's bunting phrases involve things she has posted over a course of six years. She reveals, that blogging "has changed my concept of privacy." With statement such as, “I want to puke and sleep for six days," that is not surprising.
