The London Festival of Photography looks like a great event for anyone lucky enough to get up there to attend any of the exhibitions and talks. I hoping to get to get to see some of it, especially the Jodi Bieber talk and Steve Bloom if I can get a ticket! There are also several exhibitions focussed on street photography, which is something about which I need to develop an understanding of sorts as it is one part of the OCA course that I am least looking forward to. Photograph anyone near where I live and you would probably get shot, and not with a camera either. Below is a snip from the LFP website.
In June 2012, London's most celebrated venues (Museum of London, British Library, British Museum, Tate Modern, the V&A and more...) will play host to a world-class, city-wide celebration of photography as the London Festival of Photography returns for its second year.
Encompassing street, documentary and conceptual photography, the festival includes 18 exhibitions and 40 satellite events including workshops, talks and screenings.
Exhibitions will vary in style and format, presenting a comprehensive mixture of disciplines with work from both established and emerging photographers. Content will be curated around the theme, Inside Out: Reflections on the Public and the Private.
The festival opens to the public on 1 June 2012 (many exhibitions are open during the Queen's Diamond Jubilee bank holiday weekend 2, 3, 4 & 5 June).
