Photographer's Note


The last 4 posts in my brazilian travelogue are different moments of a brief but unforgettable TE meeting in Paraty. The hike through wonderful beach stretches and virgin rain forest, “Mata Atlantica” led us to the “Piscina Caxadaço”. After a nice rest the ladies were still tired and not in the mood to walk back. The small taxi motor boats were a to big temptation. So there we went back to Trindade ... and the TE people just couldn’t stop to do what they best do. Shoot pictures! In this particular moment captured here they were paparazzi.

Paparazzi is a plural term (paparazzo being the singular form) for photographers who take candid photographs of celebrities, usually by relentlessly shadowing them in their public and private activities.

I see every day so many street photography at TE and wondered since beginning at TE how much legal issue could be there. We live in the most litigious society on earth, and we produce images that are whipped around the planet on the internet, subject to being co-opted, misappropriated, misused or objected to, all in real time. The legal aspects of making and displaying images should be a concern for every TE member. For anyone interested in this matter I found a very interesting and helpful web-page to be checked out.

Oh, by the way, the identity of these people on this post are classified, otherwise I would be suit.
