Upcoming Events and Exhibitions

It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years, but it has! For our anniversary we will be marking this landmark year by inviting three photographers who spoke at Redeye’s first public lectures to return. It’s a chance to reflect on their photographic careers in parallel to Redeye’s lifespan. The third and final session in the series sees Paul Hill invite David Grinly.
