London celebrates street photography

The inaugural London Street Photography Festival will bring together the work of international artists this month.

Throughout July, a series of photographs which document everyday life, highlighting amusing juxtapositions and exposing bizarre habits, will be on show alongside a diverse events programme at various venues in the capital.

Taking over the exhibition space at Kings Cross, the work of Chicago street photographer Vivian Maier will be on show at the German Gymnasium (pictured above), while the British Library hosts the newly discovered work of British photographer Walter Joseph. And two members from the leading street photography collective ‘In-Public’, Nick Turpin and Nils Jorgensen, will be presenting their work from England and France at St. Pancras International.

The festival will also see a range of talks, workshops and interactive events take place. Among them: a talk with V&A Curator of Photographs Susanna Brown; an interactive Olympic Photo-Cycle lead by Toby Smith; and a London to Paris Street Photography Workshop with In-Public founder Nick Turpin.

London Street Photography Festival runs through to the 31 July at various London venues, for more information visit
