    Would you punch Bruce Gilden in his face? :)

    Inspired by one thread from Street forums, I'd like to ask you, as a photographer to photographer:
    Would you punch Bruce Gilden in his face, when he'd get close to you and fire his flash into your eyes?

    Just in case you don't know who Bruce Gilden is, enter his name into youtube.com search.

    Of course I don't have anything personal against Gilden - never met him; the poll is just for hypothetical situation, you can use any other photographer name instead (just imagine he's behaving same as Gilden).

    Of course we all like to think that we'd beat him to death and then throw his body on top of the Statue of Liberty and that we'd get applauded by the police and all... But in real life we'd just let him shoot away and we'd probably be left in awe by his great balls of fire.

    There's a video where a female subject (victim?) starts pushing and smacking at him in response to being photographed. I can't believe he's never had a true physical confrontation (he claims he hasn't).

    Would I punch him? Heck no. I'd be flattered.

    I wouldn't punch him, but would engage him in a debate on whether the best Nikon glass was better than the best Leica glass. That should be punishment enough.....

    The more and more I see and think about Bruce Gilden, his way of working, and his attitude, the more I say POWER TO HIM.

    You GO Bruce!

    So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

    In my continuing education of the photo world, I was not aware of this guy previously and after two minutes of watching his YouTube stuff my impression of him was simple and immediate.

    He is an arrogant douchebag.

    Interesting photos at times, (and I am a lover of the happy accident) but his method strikes me as similar to monkeys pounding out Hamlet, hit the keys (or shutter) enough times and you will end up with cool things.
    "There is no such thing as objective reality in a photograph"

    My flickr and (gasp!) dpug photos - take a look if you like.
