The city of London is completely dedicated to photography throughout the whole of June: the London Festival of Photography (LFPH) 2012 starts on June 1, and will display works by international photographers all the way to the end of the month. The exhibitions and events are located primarily in three districts: King's Cross, Bloomsbury and Fitzrovia.
Theme of the festival and number of visitors
Last year around 30,000 people visited the festival exhibitions, workshops and events throughout the British capital. This year the festival has the motto “Inside Out: Reflections on the Public and the Private”. So far, 20 exhibitions have been planned. The “The Great British Public” series will present works by photographers who have spent a large part of their lives on the island, documenting the daily life and rituals of the Brits. Among others, new works by Magnum photographers Martin Parr and Chris Steele-Perkins will be on display.
Workshops and Events
Within the framework of the workshops on offer, photography masters – such as, for example, the 2011 World Press Photo Award winner, Jodi Bieber – will reveal their photographic tricks and tips. “Finding your photographic voice” is a feature where photographers explain how you can express personal impressions and opinions in images.
In addition, the festival offers all types of events with presentations by photographers, including a portfolio discussion, where experts give their opinions and suggestions about the works submitted.
