Street Photography Symposium

Street Photography Symposium

Panelist on Photographing the City at Street London

In August this year, I was honoured to be asked by Nick Turpin of the street photography collective iN-PUBLiC to be included on a panel discussion on photographing the City of London. The panel was part of the Street Photography Symposium held at the wonderful new D&AD building in Shoreditch just off Brick Lane. The weekend was a great event put together by Martin Usborne of Hoxton Mini Press and Jason Reed the founder was back in time for the event. Both Jason Reed and Nick Turpin where the creative directors for the Street Photography Symposium  I have to say they put on an extremely well organised event that gave lots to think about for a street photographer. My section involved a panel discussion with Nick Turpin, Stephen McLaren ( of Street Photography Now {AmazonUK Link} fame) and Charlie Kwai and I even got a panelist mention page on the website check it out  (Michael Wayne Plant panelist page). the discussion could have gone on longer as we had only just scorched the surface when we where given the 5 minute warning for our time slot.

I do hope they invite me back next year, as it was such a great well run event. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in Street Photography. The range of speakers and photographers presenting work was diverse. I think credit should go to Nick Turpin for a lot of that, in addition he also made a real effort to include women photographers in the conversation on street photography.
