A Pulitzer Prize winning photojournalist has been fined $1000 for taking photographs of migrants in a camp in the Canary Islands, Spain. Spanish police allegedly confronted photographer Javier Bauluz and attempted to prevent him from documenting the conditions of the camp under Spain’s unpopular ‘gag law’.
At the time, police warned Bauluz he would be fined for “disrespecting an agent” and “refusing to identify himself”, despite the photographer’s insistence that he had handed over his identification.
