Anybody in London for the fine month of June?

It’s June 2012, and London Festival of Photography is back for its second year. A plethora of venues will take part in the city-wide event: Tate Modern, British Library, Victoria and Albert, to name just a few. It’s chock full of talks, exhibits and workshops.

Most of the exhibits are now open to the public. Check out all the details at the festival’s website. Kevin Meredith also has a great blog post summarizing the main exhibits, from the Great British Public exhibit, which depicts street life, to Steve Bloom’s Beneath the Surface collection of 1970s South Africa during Apartheid. Starting June 21st, there’s even an exhibit called The Gaddafi Archives that investigates the recent events in Libya.

For all of us DSLR travelers, be sure to check out the International Street Photography exhibit on Oxford Street.

The Festival has a fantastic workshop lineup, too — Jodi Bieber will teach a four-day Finding Your Photographic Voice class and there will be several photo walks and classes on after dark photography. Full lineup here: http://www.lfph.org/diary
