    I wouldn't punch him in the face because if I hit his Leica it would really hurt, but I would kick him in the nuts!

    I've seen some of his other work and consider it much superior to his flash-in the face stuff.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    If I met him, I would smile. You know what? He hates that! He doesn't want people to smile into the camera lens! So smile. Constantly. Look and point at the lens. Yeah, he can photograph me. And I'll mug for the lens, which is exactly what he doesn't want.

    Charlie Kirk (Two Cute Dogs on Flickr) has been labeled an imitator by a number of people. They seem to have a very similar working style - and similar criticism surrounding it.
    Those who know, shoot film

    No...it's a refreshing departure from being hit up for spare change.

    I'm being sarcastic. The guy is one of my photographic idols but I am pretty sure it'd scare the shit out of me if he got the jump on me like he has on some people.

    Without a doubt! Then I would likely proceed to insert both his camera as well as his flash.... As someone who shoots on the street, one of my primary protocols is to adopt a sort of "passive demeanor," the object being to show to my subject a sort of neutrality: that I as a photographer am there to record an event (or, simply, life) unfolding, not to provoke - or create (artificially) an incident or - a reaction to record. Gilden's modus operandi does a disservice to those of us who shoot on the street: we come across to the public as arrogant, rude, ill-mannered, inconsiderate and intrusive. Just what the world needs: more incivility!
