One day last summer, as anti-government protests roiled Istanbul, a 14-year-old boy named Berkin Elvan was on his way to buy bread when he was struck in the head by a tear gas canister. After spending months in a coma, Berkin died this week — reigniting anger at Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and sending thousands back into the streets in dozens of cities. Riot police were quick to react, disrupting demonstrations with water cannons, clubs, and more tear gas. At least two were killed, dozens more injured. Opposition groups are calling for further protests and are still seeking the ouster of Prime Minister Erdogan.

"Literally every day, someone is being arrested for doing nothing more than taking a photograph in a public place. It makes no sense to me. Photography is an expression of free speech.

Since 9/11, there’s been an incredible number of incidents where photographers are being interfered with and arrested for doing nothing other than taking pictures or recording video in public places.

It’s not just news photographers who should be concerned with this. I think every citizen should be concerned."

Mickey H. Osterreicher, general counsel, National Press Photographers Association. New York Times Lens Blog, Criminalizing Photography

Professional and non-profressional photographers need to know their rights.

Here’s a brief primer from us.

If you want to jump straight into the details, the ACLU writes about photographer rights here.

Photographers who didn’t step in to help

What’s it like to witness a mob attack, a starving child or the aftermath of a bomb, and take a photograph instead of stopping to help? As two journalists are under fire for recording rather than intervening in a sex attack in India, Guardian asks people who know.

A very tough debate between ethical responsibility and photography. What would you do?

Here’s that post we mentioned a little while ago.
