Upcoming Events and Exhibitions
Ever had that overwhelming feeling of social anxiety when the word 'networking' is muttered? Ever avoided walking up to a person and introducing yourself as a photographer or artist? Then struggled to remember what your work is, never mind coherently talk about it? If the answer to any of the above is 'yes', 'maybe' or 'please stop talking about networking', join us on the 13th July for our anti-networking event at Manchester Craft and Design Centre as part of Manifest Arts Festival.
Past Events and Exhibitions
In a major new touring exhibition leading contemporary photographers join forces to present the multimedia project Sixteen, exploring the dreams, hopes and fears of 16-year olds across the UK.
Mark Hobbs is starting an informal monthly photography meet-up in Manchester for anyone currently working on or wanting to start personal photography projects. Mark says, "The idea is to bring along some photography from a project or idea you're working on currently, whatever stage you're at, even if it's only an idea at the moment. During the evening, people can show each other their work, get feedback, ask questions, come up with solutions or ideas for stuff you're stuck with."
People from the industry discuss Martin Parr's Return to Manchester exhibition offering their perspective and opinions on the work, including Redeye Director Paul Herrmann.
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.
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.
Director Richard Billingham will be at this special screening for a Q&A following the special preview screening on Monday 4 February.
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.
