Events and Exhibitions
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.
Past Events and Exhibitions
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.
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.
