Ipovlopsychophobia (ē-pōv′lo-sy-cho-fō′bē-ă, from Greek ὑποβλώψ - ypovló̱ps, "one who takes stolen glances",[1] ψυχή - psychí̱, "the soul",[2] and φόβος - phobos, "fear"[3]) refers to a fear, aversion, or strong refusal to have one's photograph taken. Although an uncommon phobia, it has been noted within minor religions as an experience to which one believes their spirit or essence is stolen by the photographer and the photographic equipment.[4]
