Brussels Street Photography Festival
The Brussels Street Photography Festival (BSPF) is a photography festival that aims to promote street photography as an art form, as well as an urban research tool and a form of cultural communication.
The BSPF aims to bring together the talent and artistic visions of both seasoned and emerging street photographers. By showing them to the general public, the Brussels Street Photography Festival aims to raise awareness and attract new street photography enthusiasts. In addition to exhibition and networking opportunities, the festival also offers lectures, workshops, photo walks and feedback to excite image makers, inspire them and further develop their talents.
The BSPF was founded in 2016 by Cakri asbl, a cultural association in Brussels with the goal of enriching the urban landscape with cultural projects. As of 2023, BREEDBEELD asbl will take over the organization of the festival. BREEDBEELD supports, informs, inspires and connects everyone involved in photography, film or media arts in Flanders and the Brussels Capital Region.
For the Brussels Street Photography Festival, Brussels is not only the perfect host city, but also the main source of inspiration. As a local city with global allure, Brussels cannot be captured by a single recognizable image. It is therefore an interesting challenge to portray a city with such a variety of impressions.
The main ambition of the BSPF is to delve deeper into those visual elements that define the current identity of Brussels, both from a local and a global perspective.
