Upcoming Events and Exhibitions

Redeye's Critique Surgeries are aimed at photographers or artists looking for advice and feedback on their work or practice. 

At this month's session, we welcome guest panellists Mario Popham, and Laura Deane in addition to Redeye Director Paul Herrmann.

In our experience, everyone is going about their business, talking about the success stories of their career to apply for new work. And so they should. But isn't it freeing to hear about the things that haven't quite gone to plan? Isn't it encouraging to know most people have experienced projects that go totally wrong? Yes!. This is a session to learn from each other's different situations to prevent future issues for yourself.

Photographic artist and Redeye Member, Natalie Wardle returns to host an evening with Sade Mica and other talented northern photographers whose work looks at the human form in visual art and performance.

Natalie Wardle is a visual artist and photographer from Manchester. Her work looks at how women construct their bodies to fit in with society’s ideal body types, exploring shapewear and tape that is placed over nipples to both cover and repress their form.

The work of Sade Mica explores her experiences navigating the world as a queer, black person and the nuances that brings in fleshing out an identity that is often met with contempt and confusion.

Have you protected your photography in a robust way online and offline? Are you at risk of missing out on payment? What can you do if you find your photography or visual art copied and stolen for online use?

Some say this is an unfortunate by-product of the internet and social media, but it is possible to be paid for this work by following a few simple rules. Following his very popular session at the National Photography Symposium 2018, we are delighted to be working in partnership with the NUJ to welcome back photographer John Walmsley to explain how to do it.

Interested in large format film photography? Want to improve your ideas and technique? Come and hear from photographer Craig Easton, and if you like, bring along your work for group critique and feedback.

Craig Easton uses large format photography as part of Sixteen, a major new national touring project involving 16 photographers looking at the experience of 16-year-olds all around the UK. The project evolved from his earlier work The Scottish Referendum Project and aims to give a platform for young people from all walks of life to express their aspirations, hopes, dreams and fears for their futures.

Chloe Dewe Mathews is an award-winning photographic artist. She is best known for ambitious documentary projects that can take years of preparation.

Rut Blees Luxemburg's technique is to take photographs at night, mostly exploring the urban landscape. Rut employs long exposures to allow her to use the light emanating from the street only, for instance from office blocks or street lights in her photos. Many of her photographs and prints deal with nocturnal themes.

4 February 2019, 18:00 to 19:30

Director Richard Billingham will be at this special screening for a Q&A following the special preview screening on Monday 4 February.

Film details

Renowned photographer and artist Richard Billingham makes his feature-film debut with this family portrait, inspired in part by his own memories and shot on stunning 16mm. Defying chronology, the film is something of a memory-induced tone poem that feels a million miles from the kitchen sink drama.

Photographic artist Ingrid Pollard joins Redeye to talk about her life, work, and unique approach to photography.

Ingrid Pollard was born in Georgetown, Guyana in 1953 and moved to England when she was four years old. Since then she has lived in London working as a photographer, printer, media artist and researcher.
