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.

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.

Photographic artist and Redeye Member, Natalie Wardle returns to host an evening that includes presentations from other talented northern photographers Sade Mica and Lucie Crewdson 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.

Lucie Crewdson is a photographer living and working in Manchester. Lucie's photographic practise revolves around everyday experiences, the use of the body, elements of performance and sits within a fashion and fine art context.

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.
