Issue 5: Photography is Not a Crime

Spring 2006

In a post-9/11 age of paranoia and suspicion, public photography is increasingly seen as threatening, or mistaken as criminal. And we here at JPG are sick of it. So we devoted issue 5 to this important topic. The theme, "Photography is Not a Crime," is a rallying cry. It's meant to remind everyone that amateur photographers are the documentarians of real life. We capture our world to help us understand it. We are not a threat.

This issue contains 31 photographer's takes and stories on the theme, NYC subway photography by Edmund Leveckis, Shane Lavalette's Family Portrait Project, an interview with attorney Bert Krages, and a special clip-out Photographer's Right Bust Card.

The early issues of JPG (issues 1 through 6) are available in print exclusively through Lulu.
