Yesterday I saw a horrible scene shared on Facebook. It appeared to show a man in a supermarket bending over with a mobile phone and shooting up the skirt of a woman who was unaware of his actions. The whole disgusting thing was captured on the shop’s cctv. It is right that such behaviour is criminalised.
However, Amateur Photographer magazine are concerned about how a new police approach to combatting the harassment of women will affect genuine street photographers’ freedom to take images of strangers in public.
