    I would not punch him, I'm not like that, but I would be pretty angry, I don't mind having my photograph taken "on the street" and it has happened quite often. I have always felt a certain respect from the photographer and I like to reciprocate when I turn the camera on others. Gilden has an attitude of flippancy which is downright rude!
    Regards

    I don't argue that he is not a pro, but he is a people person as much as a mugger is a people person. Getting the jump on someone who does not see him coming is what he does.

    Never met Bruce myself but friends know him and report he's a great chap. Photography would be a bit more boring without him I think, though we could do with a few less of his imitators! He spent some time in Derby in the UK not so long ago and I think remained un-punched.

    Not sure if I'd punch him, or just ask him for a free print, but he wouldn't be the only one--all those "concerned" photographers touring the third world shoving their camera in the face of hunger who also believe they have a connection with their subject equally deserve a free kick in the noots.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    And the photographic world is a better place for it.
