08-May-1997: Train station of Kiev, Ukraine.

A few days ago the Greek photographer Pericles Antoniou has been arrested in London/UK and sent to court for causing 'public harassment, alarm or distress' after taking and deleting pictures of a young girl in the London underground:
This amazing story reminds me a similar story with me a few years ago. In the photographs that you see in this post are shot in Kiev's train station on 08-May-1997. Because I was taking these photographs I was arrested. The police saw a foreigner with a photo-camera and thought that probably he is a "spy" or a "terrorist" ;-). In the police office I was trying to explain that I am tourist, I am taking photographs as an amateur photographer / "artist" etc etc.
