Street Photography points out what kind of society we produce – it holds up a mirror to us. The upcoming London Street Photography Festival is dedicated to this genre that captures spontaneous moments in the public domain: in any public space including streets, beaches, parks, museums and galleries, country lanes, countryside, roofs of buildings.
Throughout July 2011 the festival offers an interesting approach to contemporary aspects of Street Photography: Exhibitions such as On Street Photography: A Woman`s Perspective or No Man`s Land which (…) explores the margins of our urban and rural European environment as experienced by what appear to be women soliciting sex, all captured by Google Street View cameras.(…) sound promising. The program additionally offers workshops (Pinehole Camera), lectures, events like film screenings or city walks and awards.
