Are you feeling a bit disconnected from the photography community post lockdown?
This is a relaxed opportunity to reconnect with the photo community and meet other artists working within the region. We would also like to take this opportunity to (re-) introduce ourselves to you and meet you in real life. You will hear from the director of Redeye, Paul Herrmann, as well as a couple of other photographers in a short presentation. Redeye's programme co-ordinator Rebecca Burns will be there too.
Come and see us at Photo North!
“Photo North Festival, run by Sharon Price, Peter Dench and friends, is back for its third year, at Bonded Warehouse, Manchester, 7,8,9 May. Building on the success of previous years, this unique photography event is aimed at the professional photographer, art-enthusiast, keen amateur and students. The festival brings together a sensational display of exhibitions, talks, walks, workshops and portfolio reviews from highly respected and emerging artists.
In Praise Of Blandness invites the viewer to appreciate the aesthetic of the ordinary and the everyday.
Paper Geographies is an exhibition at Manchester Central Library that brings together 12 artists who use photography to explore the relationships between materiality and place. The expanded field of photography is represented by works that challenge the medium’s own specificity; including documentary and appropriated imagery, performance and sculpture, moving image, analogue processes, digital and 3D animation.
Cherish is an exhibition looking at our desire to document the familiar and intimate. Curated by Victoria Smith and Ted Holborn, final year Photography students at Manchester School of Art, the exhibition will take place over two days in the Link Gallery. It is the first in a series of curatorial experiments from Photography students at MMU.
Common Ground is a photographic exhibition that seeks to find the connection between varying personalities, cultures and even opposing ideologies. A call to see the good in another and seek the common ground.
