Experiencing the pandemic - a philosopher's perspective

In April 2020 at the height of lockdown Redeye invited the philosopher Dr Katrin Joost to give a talk reflecting on the effect of the pandemic on all of us, both individually and collectively. Her talk also included reference to the part photography plays in exploring these ideas. The essay below expands on those reflections.

Stepping back to jump forward

In mid-April 2020 Redeye invited colleagues from Company of Mind, Adrian West and Sophie Brown, to talk online to artists and photographers about how to adapt creative businesses to the coronavirus pandemic. They shared some useful ideas about how to think about and picture businesses in a way that enables us to see what we might change for the better. In this article Adrian and Sophie explore those ideas a bit further.
