Redeye is very pleased to be presenting Hothouse in Leeds for the first time next year. Taking place on Saturday 2 February 2019 at Leeds Art Gallery. This day of new photography is a showcase of creative talent and a hive of photographic activity and information.
What is Hothouse?
Hothouse is an event with short presentations from photographers about their recent work and projects. If you have a project or body of work you would like to talk about, whether it’s complete or a work in progress, we would love to hear from you. In addition to the presentations there will also be the opportunity to look through these and other photographic portfolios, and photography books.
Applications for presentations
We are seeking photographers who can give short, eight to ten minute presentations about their work. These can either be a single project, series or connected body of work, and the slots are open to photographers from all fields – fine art, photojournalism, landscape, portrait, documentary, social, commercial, experimental – anything!
If you are interested in presenting your work, please send up to 12 jpeg images (no bigger than 5MB in total), along with a few sentences about yourself and your work, to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 5 November at 9am.
Please clearly mark in the email subject line, 'APPLICATION FOR LEEDS HOTHOUSE'.
We aim to include as many presentations as we can, and will let you know if you have been successful by Monday 26 November.
Showing your book or portfolio
There are two options for showing your book or portfolio. There's an open table on which you can leave your published or self-published book for others to browse. While there will be Redeye staff nearby, the table is not permanently staffed and so we advise you not to leave unique books or anything of significant value. The other option is to be on hand to talk to visitors about your book or portfolio. We will provide a limited number of tables for this purpose. Spaces at these tables are first come, first served. If you would like to bring a portfolio, please email Charlie Booth at email@example.com ahead of the day.
Venue and times
Hothouse Manchester will take place from 10.30am to 4.30pm on Saturday 2 February at Leeds Art Gallery. You are welcome to come for the whole afternoon or drop in at any time. The full programme of talks will be announced via www.redeye.org.uk in December.
