Street London Photography Festival


Street Photography Festival
is back for 2018!

Now over three full days

17/18/19 August 2018
East London

STREET LONDON 2017 was better than we could have ever imagined. The atmosphere, the presentations, the party, the food, the shoots… everything went swimmingly. We felt inspired to come back this year bigger and better than before. We are back in the same brilliant venue at D&AD in East London but after listening to your comments we are opening an extra day for workshops and portfolio reviews. We will also be adding to our list of speakers with more brilliant names.

New Theme

This year we want to shift focus a little. Our hope is that each year we will introduce a new theme to stretch our understanding and appreciation of street photography. Last year, we aimed to ask the question ‘Why take street photographs?’ (instead of just ‘How do we take street photographs?’). This year we want to explore the ‘boundaries’ of street photography. ‘Where does street photography meet documentary, art and conceptual photography?’.

Watch this space.

FRI — workshops and portfolio reviews (welcome drinks in evening)

SAT — breakfast, presentations, panel discussions, street shooting (party in evening)

SUN — breakfast, presentations, panel discussions, awards

Tickets and more details will be available soon

We aim to have separate tickets for the Friday and the weekend.

Register your interest and we’ll notify you when tickets are available

“All year you are out there; working on the streets, making your pictures in isolation, thinking about why you do it, what it means, planning your books, printing your exhibitions. Now we invite you to London to meet your colleagues, drink, eat, discuss your work and that of others, share prints, sign books and be inspired” — Nick Turpin

Cities are the spiritual home of the street photographer. Three major cities have featured heavily in the evolution of candid public photography: Paris in the 1920’s, New York in the 60’s and 70’s and, over the last decade, London has now become a home for this democratic art form.

London is a large, vibrant and cosmopolitan metropolis with a rich social history and strong sense of freedom. It’s not surprising that, when a new generation of photographers took up the Street Photography baton, they were Londoners. The first cooperative to promote street photography, iN‑Public, was founded in London; the first dedicated Street Photography Festival was held in London and the most notable Street Photography books have been written and published out of London.
