Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
World-class photography takes over London’s most celebrated venues, large and small, for the festival’s inaugural year. The London Street Photography Festival launches this summer to celebrate the time-honoured genre. An exciting new addition to London’s cultural calendar, the festival, 1st-31st July 2011, features curated exhibitions alongside a diverse events programme bringing together leading international artists past and present. Highlights include the first UK exhibition of the incredible archives of mysterious Chicago street photographer Vivian Maier at the German Gymnasium, as well as a newly discovered body of work by previously unknown British photographer Walter Joseph - a gritty portrait of post-war London at the British Library.
Photo Fusion will present rare perspectives by leading female street photographers from around the world, whilst the voyeuristic Seen/Unseen showcases new work by award-winning photographers George Georgiou and Mimi Mollica, using the London bus as a vehicle to explore an unknowing public. Leading street photography collective In-Public will see two of its celebrated members, Nick Turpin and Nils Jorgensen, unite in a joint show presenting work from England and France at St. Pancras International.
