Originally envisaged as a physical exchange between UK and Hong Kong visual arts networks, Peer to Peer has responded to the Covid-19 pandemic to become an online space where meaningful exchange can happen and partnerships and relationships can be forged. This panel discusses the changing role of archives, comparing the approaches in Hong Kong and the UK, and considers what the archives and collections of the future might look like.

News and Opportunities

We were saddened to learn of the recent death of Paul Murphy. Paul was an early and hard-working supporter of Redeye, and an enthusiastic expressive photographer supported by his detailed understanding of photographic processes; all of which ran alongside his stellar career as a physicist. Here we publish appreciations from four other photographers: Thomas Joshua Cooper, Paul Hill, Mike Ware and Len Grant.

In the late 1980s and 90s Sheffield reached a pivotal moment in its history, one which saw it begin a journey of regeneration and transformation into the city we know today. The first steps on that journey were documented by a group of gifted photographers whose work reflected both the hope and hard realities of the time. Today, as major developments in the city see its landscape continuing to evolve, a new exhibition at Weston Park Museum re-presents those original photographs to chronicle a significant turning point for Sheffield and its people.
