Serious phone probs. Will be getting it everywhere asap-"got to the point" WOW. Perhaps he wasn't breast fed? There was a medical emergency and people were trying to give breathing space. To get his photo the sob punched me in the head. As soon as I can upload you'll have damages and his photo.

Can you send the photo of this photographer to our photo work group, as we have had interaction with most if not all photogs that have been on site. Thnx!


Can you also provide more details as to how the situation got to the point that he would punch you? I’m not condoning this behavior but as a professional photog I’ve never seen a photog punch someone in the face just to get someone out of the way for a photograph, unless it was to another photographer.


If it’s easier to explain in person, let’s meet up somewhere..? I can’t provide any legal advice just want to understand the situation better and perhaps not work with this person.

Subject: [GlobalRevolutionMedia] I was attcked by a photographer


When I was helping with a medical emergency on the NE corner of the park a photographer who police told me was with the ny times and others said was with the post punched me in my right temple. I have photos of him and of my bruise. Medical also looked at me and said they don't think I have a concussion but to guard my own condition for 24 hrs. Ideas?
