We are delighted to welcome the award-winning director of African Apocalypse Rob Lemkin and the film’s narrator Femi Nylander for the next of our Photo Histories events.

The powerful new film tells the story of a young man’s journey across Africa in search of a colonial killer. The film’s protagonist, Femi Nylander, begins his journey exploring photographic archives that bear witness to the brutal violence visited on the people of Africa by Europeans.

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

The Greater Manchester Centre for Photography based at the University of Bolton have kindly offered Redeye members the opportunity to attend this talk with renouned fashion photographer Craig McDean.

At a time when distance is advised, we present to you groups of artists working in synergy and getting the most out of collective working. Join us virtually to hear their experiences of the collective, and to answer your questions.

Redeye is very pleased to be presenting our first digital Hothouse event in partnership with Fuse on Saturday the 30th January 2021. Join us for a day dedicated to spotlighting fresh, photographic content through a series of quick fire presentations from a variety of artists.

For our last event of 2020 we wanted to get together with you all for one more Stay and Chat, with a twist. We want to celebrate photography with a chat about some of our favourite photographic projects and objects. A glass of wine or your favourite drink is encouraged but unfortunately not provided, and we will toast the end of 2020.

This event will be an opportunity to hear more about Lightbox Online and ask any questions about the course and how to get involved.  Redeye’s director Paul Herrmann and Programme Coordinator Rachael Burns will be on hand to talk through the aims of the course and work out if it is the right fit for you.

Lightbox Online is a six-month programme of talks, workshops and group critiques fostering a community of practice that will allow you to grow. There will be a focus on the skills required to sustain a career, from developing and managing standout projects, via marketing, fundraising and evaluation to collaborative working and ethical practice.

Student and graduation panel session: Where now?

Paul Herrmann and a group of mentors from across the image-making industry will come together to give quick-fire advice to those who have just graduated (or who are still studying) and are wondering what options there are to progress their careers in light of the recent global upheaval. The panellists will invite their audience to think creatively and adapt their mindset to a working environment that while challenging, could also offer some very different opportunities.
