"After 11 years, Stuart is something of an old hand. Using the street
photographer's traditional tool of choice - the discreet and near silent
Leica camera - he knows how to make himself invisible, make an image and
move on. He rarely runs into trouble; when he does, he knows his rights.

Others aren't so adept. In the past year, the photography blogs have buzzed
with tales of harassment, even violence. There's the war photographer who
dodged bullets abroad only to be beaten up in his own South London backyard
by a paranoid parent who (wrongly) thought his child was being photographed"
