As always, I walked randomly in a demonstration this weekend. Today anti-abortion movement where doing their annual «Walk of Life». I did a specific report on this (soon to be online), but I also took time to observe the media presence in the demonstration. There was maybe 2 or 3 TV crew, about 10 photographer like me, but also a huge amount of spectator shooting the demonstration from behind their cell phone or point and shoot camera. Hundreds of witnesses all along the street, shooting the same moments than me just because they were in the street at the exact right time.
But wait, what was the role of the photographer again ?
