This year’s festival is devoted to examining the ‘borders’ of street photography: looking at where it meets art and conceptual photography, as well as documentary.
Hoxton Mini Press, the renowned East London publisher, joins Nick Turpin (photographer and founder of the iN-PUBlic international street photography collective) and guest creative directors Kristin Van den Eede and Olly Lang, to create the latest version of the festival (which was originally founded by Jason Reed of the Observe Collective).
A host of renowned street photographers will be speaking at the three-day event, including Simon Roberts, Dorothy Bohm, Zed Nelson and Julie Hrudova. There will also be a ‘spotlight’ hour, where six emerging street photographers will be given the opportunity to share their work.
Panel discussions will take place on some of the key issues associated with street photography, including the ethics and morality of the form, and how to get commissions and build a career from the medium.
Finally, for those who just want to get out and take their own shots, photographers Nick Turpin, Kristin van den Eede, Olly Lang, Charlie Kwai and David Gaberle will be hosting free guided photo shoot walks in the area on the Saturday evening (this event will be first come, first served on the day).
