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.

Past Events and Exhibitions

29 November 2018, 18:00 to 19:30

In partnership with CFCCA, we are delighted to welcome international award-winning photographer Mandy Barker to present her globally recognised work involving marine plastic debris. Working alongside scientists, Mandy aims to raise awareness about pollution in the world's oceans whilst highlighting the harmful affect on marine life and ultimately ourselves.

This November, international campaign movement With One Voice is holding the first ever International Arts and Homelessness Summit and Festival. The events are based on the acknowledgement that homelessness is not just about housing and practical ‘house-lessness’, and look to investigate how the arts are being used effectively around the world to reduce social isolation by building social networks and increasing both physical and mental health, improving public attitudes/promoting understanding towards people who are or have been homeless, and enabling homeless people to express themselves so their voice can be heard. 

22 October 2018, 18:00 to 20:00

Get informal advice on your career and photographic work during 30-minute one-to-one sessions with experts in the industry. At this month's critique, we welcome guest panellists Angela Sheard (Associate Curator and Programme Coordinator of Impressions Gallery, Bradford) and Howard Barlow (freelance photojournalist) alongside Paul Herrmann (Director of Redeye, the Photography Network).

9 October 2018, 19:00 to 20:30

The image of Manchester has been accurately represented visually over the years by the likes of local stalwarts Samuel Coulthurst or Kevin Cummins. In times of political and social flux, a rather more acerbic, satirical identity has been required, and David Dunnico is one of the people to have picked up that baton.

26 July 2018 to 29 September 2018

There is nothing linear about femininity - or what it means to be a woman - in the 21st century. Sex and gender are not limited to the monolithic paradigm of genetics; they are informed by something intangible, and it this essence of the female paradox that makes Allie's work as relevant as it is important and sets her apart form others in her field.

26 September 2018, 19:00 to 20:00
