We certainly have problems here in the US and there are lots of examples of photographers being arrested for doing nothing illegal. However it seems like they have it worse in France (at least for now…).
Nick Turpin has run dozens of street photography workshops in Europe, but nothing compares to Paris, where his students are often confronted by furious pedestrians who don’t want to be in anyone’s picture
