Swiss village bans tourists from taking pictures – prompting group to cancel photography trip

A little known village in Switzerland has banned people from taking photos in an attempt, it says, to save jealous travellers around the world from a fear of missing out (or FOMO).

Bergün/Bravuogn in the Albula region, part of the Graubünden canton and just an hour from the celebrity hotspots of St Moritz and Davos, announced the new law yesterday following a vote by the local council. From Wednesday anyone caught taking pictures in the village will be issued with a symbolic 5CHF (£4) fine.
