The Critique Surgeries are designed to be informal sessions for photographers who are looking for feedback and advice. Maybe you are struggling for inspiration, have hit a dead end with your latest project or you simply want advice on where, or who, to show your work to. In May we are joined by Lauren Maccabee, Lau Ching-Pig and Paul Herrmann.

Our Open Space events are informal discussions focused around subjects important to the photography community.

For this event we are thrilled to welcome Anna Farley, an autistic artist who is currently reviewing the accessibility of our website and digital events. As part of the commission Anna wants to hear from as many people as possible who have additional access needs, find online events difficult or feel excluded in any way.

Redeye's Photo Histories is a new strand of events that looks at some of the many histories that photography can uncover. The strand features photographers, archivists, scholars and historians exploring some of the lesser-known and under represented histories of photography.
