I’m very interested in expanding my sense of what the ethics are for street photography.
Eric Kim posted the same issue a few days ago here. He made some great points, including the idea that taking pictures of kids should be fine. I want to agree with that, but there is a part of me that is wary. Having a child of your own will do that; it’s easy to see both sides. No matter, taking pictures of anyone requires sensitivity. Some people won’t protest, but we may never know whether they cared or not.
Nevertheless, the question of ethics in street photography remains elusive, and perhaps only the individual can arrive at their own private conclusion.
Eric Kim’s post begin’s with Bruce Gilden‘s quote, “I have no ethics.”
What about you? Would love to get comments on this one. I promise there’s no judgement from me; I’m no one to cast a verdict.
