Under 21s judges: Simon Green
Simon Green is joining team LSPF as an under 21s judge alongside Becky Frances and Polly Rusyn. Here is a bit about Simon in his own words:
“I am a photographer with an interest in social documentary, visual sociology, portraiture and events. I aim to portray working class life in a progressive way.
My work has been published in national newspapers, magazines, online and has been featured in solo and collective exhibitions.
I am the founder and production director of the London Street Photography Festival. I am responsible for the engine room of the event. Additionally, in this role I champion young people and under-represented minorities.
My background is in the creative industries where I have worked as a production director, production manager and tour manager. I have been responsible for tours, shows and events across the world. I have enjoyed a diverse range of loyal clients including Wu-Tang Clan, Pusha T, G.O.O.D Music, Duke Dumont, Maya Jane Coles, Lethal Bizzle, MOBO, United Nations, BBC, British Council, National Portrait Gallery, Glastonbury, South Bank Centre and others.
I am currently studying for a BA (Hons) Photography at Coventry University”.
