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.

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. 

5 December 2018, 19:00 to 20:30

*SOLD OUT* An evening of presentations and discussions about all things green in photography. Photographers Phil Barton and Walter Lewis will be showing how they investigate issues around environmental sustainability in their work. *SOLD OUT*

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

The AGM is where Redeye reflects on the past year as well as making key decisions for the future.
