Upcoming Events and Exhibitions

10 December 2019, 18:00 to 21:00

What’s changing in your life, and how are you coping? What’s on your photographic radar? What does photography need? What can Redeye do?  Please come and share your thoughts and concerns at one or more of our discussion events.

14 January 2020, 18:00 to 21:00

The second in our series of Come and Chat events will be based around the topics of Training and Access.

1. Access, anxiety, diversity, difficulty: how can we make sure the full range of voices is heard in photography? Which ones get squeezed out?

2. Training and academia: what is the role of universities and independent training organisations? Does the growth of academic practice have unintended consequences?

What’s changing in your life, and how are you coping? What’s on your photographic radar? What does photography need? What can Redeye do?

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.

19 September 2018, 18:30 to 19:30

Come along to be introduced to the evocative work and world created by Redeye member Allie Crewe. You brought your own light is an immersive celebration, depicting women’s stories of change and transformation.

This event will be an informal catch up for Redeye members, taking place in the heart of Manchester.

This spring, one of Manchester’s landmark buildings hosts Hit the North, a major group art exhibition, produced by Hobo Photo.

Dr Alasdair Foster, Leverhulme Visiting Professor from Melbourne and Ambassador to the Asia-Pacific PhotoForum, is one of the most original, provocative and inspiring thinkers in photography. We are delighted to welcome him to Manchester during a brief visit to the UK for a keynote lecture that sets the scene for the next National Photography Symposium later in 2018 on The Future of Work in Photography.

31 May 2018

‘Duality’, a documentary photography project by Simon Bray and Tristan Poyser, explores the way in which our uniform, workwear and casual clothes influence the perception of the individual. ‘Duality’ displays each individual twice, once in their work attire, the other in their own clothing.

The exhibition will be complimented by tasting sessions from local producers, include gin from Brindle Distillery and beers from Manchester breweries Blackjack, Runaway and Track.
