The Phoblographer: Jonathan Higbee: This is What NYC Street Photographers Sometimes Experience

Supervisor asked for my I.D. I informed him that unless he was a NYPD officer, I wasn’t giving him anything. He didn’t find that very humoring, and he started aggressively patting me on the back and shoulder, in that fake jovial kind of way you might imagine a mafioso would do. He escalated threats, telling me that they did in fact call the police and not only would I be going to prison for a very long time, but I was going to be put on some kind of secret “black list” that would forever haunt me for as long as I live. LOL!
