Photography today in a few words !

Posted by Olivier Lalin -
"La photographie est une langue étrangère que tout le monde croit parler."
or rather " Photography is a foreign language that everyone believe to speak "
Philip-Lorca diCorcia
And because the right to photograph in public space is established by the First Amendment, which states that, "Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble."
Mayor Bloomberg is passing new rules currently under consideration for Film Permits (Chapter 9, Title 43 of the City Rules of New York) will have an irrevocable impact on independent filmmakers and photographers and their ability to engage in creative work in New York.
