An interview with Paul Trevor, who found some contact sheets “buried” for 35 years in his drawer.
“It all comes down to risk, again and again: if you risk coming out, making pictures that aren’t good, you might discover something in a photograph that’s the key, the very doorway to your own interest”.
The festival takes place over 10 days (7-17 July) with a diverse programme of exhibitions, events, talks, walks and workshops. The schedule is on the website and includes the first UK exhibition of Vivian Maier.
The International Street Photography Award is open to all photographers, anywhere in the world. The winner will receive £1,000 plus an all-expenses paid trip to the festival’s opening night in London – a fantastic opportunity for any photographer to take advantage of the festival’s activities, network and to promote their work.
Deadline: 31 March
Students from across the UK are invited to enter the Student Street Photography Award, with six finalists selected to take part in a group show at Orange Dot Gallery in London during the festival in July. They will also receive a one-day workshop with celebrated street photographer, Nils Jorgensen and sessions with a festival mentor to assist them in putting together the exhibition. An overall winner will be voted for by the public and receive an Olympus PEN camera.

“Street Photography Now showcases the work of forty-six image-makers who are notable for their candid depictions of life on the streets and in the subway, in shopping malls and movie theaters, on beaches and in parks. Four thought-provoking essays put the work into the wider context of what has gone before, while quotes from the photographers expand and illuminate their work and draw attention to their influences and ways of working.”
The photos will be on show from the 18th of December 2010 to the 30th of January 2011 in Cologne, at Galerie Lichtblick. The opening will be next Saturday, the 18th at 20:00. After there will be a Pre-Xmas-Party.
