The Canon 16M is a Take on How Law Enforcement Views Photographers

Before you get all excited after viewing these photographs, I'm sorry to report that the Canon 16M is not actually a real DSLR camera. Instead, it is a statement to show what Police Officers actually see when they encounter photographers documenting their work.

In recent events, Police Officers have targeted photographers who were trying to obtain footage of various public disturbances. In many first world countries such as the United States, Police Officers do not have the right to destroy and apprehend photographers and their property unless they have committed an offense.

The Canon 16M is a powerful visual analogy that should be a wake up call to many of the mistreatment of photographers and journalists everywhere.
