It’s almost October which means that the Brussels Street Photography Festival is around the corner. The 4th edition of BSPF, taking place October 4-6, is organised by photographer Dani Oshi, and he and the team do an outstanding job exhibiting great work in multiple locations across the city, and putting on talks and discussions with interesting figures from the street and documentary genre.
This year’s programme includes an exhibition of Women Street Photographers, curated by its founder Gulnara Samoilova. A selection of finalists from previous years will be shown at the Molenbeek Culture House and there will also be an exhibition by the Un-Posed collective.
As for the programme, Gulnara Samoilova and David Helbich will take the stage on Friday, prior to the grand opening. Saturday will bring us film screenings of “Garry Winogrand: All Things are Photographable” and “Harry Gruyaert Photographer“, as well as panel discussions, photo walks and talks by Max Pinckers and Maciek Nabrdalik. Also, I look forward to giving some photo feedback in the afternoon.
Sunday’s schedule will have more talks in store by Éanna de Fréine, Delphine Dumont and John Vink, photo walks, and the festival will conclude with the icing on the cake: the award ceremony. Between October 2 and 6 people can join multiple workshops and masterclasses, such as Street Photography and Mindfulness’ with Barry Talis and 3-day masterclass with Max Pinckers.

Here is a preview of the BSPF finalists, as shortlisted by this year’s jury: Delphine Dumont, Graciela Magnoni, Gulnara Samoilova, Maciek Nabrdalik & John Vink).
