London Photography Festival 2012

The London Photography Festival (LPF) opened this week (1st of June) with multiple exhibitions across the Kings Cross area of London. I was luckily invited to the pre-launch day and launch party. I did not get to see all the shows as they are not all open yet but what I did see was really interesting. I have written a little about some of the shows below. It’s not intended to be a must see list of exhibitions from the festival as I would definitely recommend taking a day checking out all the work as most of the venues are walking distance from each other. The festival runs from June 1st – June 30th.  All the info on the exhibitions, talks and workshops can be found on the LPF website.

This was not the case, The Public is a huge super modern gallery / arts facility. Its a pretty big exhibition and worth travailing to, I came 140 miles and I thought it was well worth it.
