Why does street photography make people paranoid? Stand Your Ground, a 15 minute documentary made for the London Street Festival, answers this question by getting a group of photographers to stand their ground over a period of time in a public place in London to see the objections raised by local security officials, police and the public.
It is amazing how photography in public space seems to be problematic in big UK cities these days and, to a lesser extend, in the United States. What you can do with your photo might be different in Quebec than the rest of the world, but the rule of « if you are in a public place, you can photograph everything you want » is the same so the video is relevant for photographer, wherever they live.
