LONDON Photo Festival has announced Colin O’Brien as the Judge for May’s Festival.

O’Brien’s photographs of mainly urban scenes demonstrate his eye for irony, combined with his obvious professional competence with the camera and in the darkroom.

This has resulted in him winning competitions and garnering a number of reviews and critical articles recognising his increasing importance as an exponent of the peripatetic school.

His creative eye frames, in composition, images that communicate decisive moments, whether of historical events or narratives of everyday life. He has produced a body of work in which poetic beauty is never lost, no matter how commonplace at times the subject matter.

The London Photo Festival runs from May 22 to May 24, 2014, at The Crypt (underneath St George the Martyr), Borough High Street, London, SE1 2JA.

The theme is ‘street photography’.
