Exactly. That's why people like Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank and Garry Winogrand are so disdained and even hated.
Love your sense of sarcasm, but pcunite is morally correct (nothing to do with politically correct, which is a bag of garbage) insofar as he objects to the grabbing of unauthorised images of people.
At best it can be seen as intrusion, and at worst as exploitation, particularly where the making of money from anotherīs dicomfiture is concerned.
It is something that I find somewhat annoying, this random photographing of people just because you might want to do it. I give you an example: I live in a little town that, during summer, turns into a tourist hell. I might be sitting at a table having a coffee and somebody will stop, point a camera towards where I am and make a photograph. I am perfectly aware that I am not the subject, that I just happen to be in a nice spot, but I still donīt like the thought of being in some strangerīs holiday snaps. Worse, walking along the front by the sea, I am expected to stop every few yards to permit some dope to finish making his picture of the wife and kids looking out to sea. Guess how long it would take me to walk a hundred yards if I were still to give a toss about these people and their pictures! You see? The camera can breed a certain intollerance when it starts to intrude on your life. I quite understand why some "primitives" might want to cut photographersī throats.
