The 3rd London Street Photography Festival will be taking place on the 23-25th of August 2019 at “Stour Space” and “The Old Baths” in East London. For all of you that haven’t heard of the LSPF before, it is a non-profit international event that is based in London and showcases Street Photography. The goal of the Festival is to build a community and to establish and develop a platform for networking, learning and development through exhibitions, workshops, lectures, competition and associated events. In addition the LSPF aims to be closely connected to the community and young people and provide them with the world-class resources and experience in one of the most dynamic and popular genres of photography.
