Event description

Description

Now in its third year, STREET LONDON has become the premier annual street photography festival in the UK. This summer’s weekend event will once again be held in the newly-designed D&AD venue with state-of-the-art-equipment in the heart of East London, just by Brick Lane.

Each year we concentrate on a theme within the genre. This year we examine the ‘borders’of street photography: where street photography meets documentary, art and conceptual photography opening the event to a much wider audience. An active effort is made to engage women and minority voices who are often underrepresented in the field. Whether you are a professional praticing photographer or an enthusiast who doesn't even take pictures, STREET LONDON will not disappoint.

Run by Hoxton Mini Press, an independent, award-winning publisher specialising in photography books about London, this is an opportunity to engage with a passionate group of photographers from around the world in discussions, workshops, and, of course, over food and drinks from companies equally passionate about their East London roots.

Feel free to transfer tickets to other street photographers if you can't make it but let us know in advance. If you cancel before Wednesday 18 July, 2018 we'll refund your money in full but any later makes things difficult. Between 19 July and Friday 3 August, 50% refund. Afterwards no refund will be issued. In the event of changes to the event beyond our control (ie a speaker cancelling for personal reasons), we cannot issue refunds but will do our best to ensure that the quality of the the line up and presentations are not compromised. We recommend that everyone has their own suitable travel insurance.

Where are people staying?

The area around Old Street and Liverpool Street offers plenty of hotel and AirB&B options meeting all budgets.
A popular affordable hotel near the venue is The Hub by Premier Inn Spitalfields/Brick Lane - a favourite balancing design, convenience and price. We have no relationship with them so this is purely based on past experiences from STREET LONDON participants.
