“Rules for the street”, a discussion of legality and ethics in street photography

As part of WNYC’s Street Shots Online Photo Festival in 2008, Brian Lehrer discusses the legality and ethics of taking photos of everyday people in New York with Bruce Gilden, one of the participants in Street Shots, and Eileen Clancy, founding member of Picture New York. Paul Browne, Deputy Commissioner for Public Information at the NYPD, helps explain some of the policy surrounding public photography.

Besides being a very interesting discussion, this discussion should remind us all our rights and, more importantly, our duties as photographers in the streets. I hope you will enjoy listening to it.
