An interview with Denis Thorpe

It’s 70 years since the great photojournalist Denis Thorpe started working in newspapers. He celebrates this anniversary with a new exhibition and book, both called A View from the North. Redeye’s Paul Herrmann talked to him about his career.

“It was fantastic to have started with this small camera and with it actually get that moment in time. The thrill, the satisfaction, to be able to capture atmosphere and emotion even in dreary half-light…” - Denis Thorpe

Remembering Nitin-Kumar Patel

We were very sad to learn of the death of Nitin-Kumar Patel, who served on Redeye’s board of directors from 2015 to 2017. He died on 27th August 2018 at the age of 56, after a three-month illness.

Nitin began his working life as a youth and community worker, then a probation officer and social worker. His natural flair for balance, fairness and public service saw him progress in the staff association for probation officers. He became National Chair of the Association of Black Probation Officers in 2001, and then Vice Chair of the National Association of Probation Officers.

Spotlight on: Matthew Murray

Saddleworth Moor is a landscape that is engrained in the psyche of British history for all the wrong reasons. A macabre burial ground chosen by child killers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley to conceal at least three of their victims over 50 years ago. But in Matthew Murray’s recent exhibition and publication ‘Saddleworth – Responding To A Landscape,’ Murray has allowed us to engage with the landscape diffusing our uneasiness to its dark history and replacing it with a stunning visual narrative and a desire to absorb it’s dark and dignified magnitude.
