Photo of Pete James by Brian Griffin

Join Redeye for the first in a new series of lectures that will honour the great champion of British photography Pete James, who died in March 2018. A regular lecture in partnership with The Royal Photographic Society, PARC (Photography and the Archive Research Centre), and FORMAT International Photography Festival & QUAD.

We are delighted to be returning with the National Photography Symposium (NPS), this year held in partnership with the University of Salford at their base in MediaCityUK. The Symposium will be held over three dynamic and engaging days, Thursday 1 - Saturday 3 November.

 

Rut Blees Luxemburg's technique is to take photographs at night, mostly exploring the urban landscape. Rut employs long exposures to allow her to use the light emanating from the street only, for instance from office blocks or street lights in her photos. Many of her photographs and prints deal with nocturnal themes.

Back for its fifth year, Hull International Photography Festival returns to celebrate the cultural importance of photography in the region. Alongside award-winning visiting and local photographers, there will be a host of other events taking place across the city.

This November, international campaign movement With One Voice is holding the first ever International Arts and Homelessness Summit and Festival. The events are based on the acknowledgement that homelessness is not just about housing and practical ‘house-lessness’, and look to investigate how the arts are being used effectively around the world to reduce social isolation by building social networks and increasing both physical and mental health, improving public attitudes/promoting understanding towards people who are or have been homeless, and enabling homeless people to express themselves so their voice can be heard. 

During this event, Illuminate will introduce presentations from artists involved in their project and other guest speakers, investigating the lasting impact and legacy of Hull City of Culture 2017, specifically the impact it had on Hull and its cultural industries. The session will also provide Hull-based photographers with a platform to develop their network.

Hothouse arrives in Leeds for a day-long celebration of photographic talent. Throughout the day there will be short presentations from photographers about their recent work and projects, plus ample opportunity for networking and showing portfolios and books. Redeye is delighted to be working with Miniclick and Lens Think Yorkshire on this edition of Hothouse; they have both contributed to the day’s programming.

The AGM is where Redeye reflects on the past year as well as making key decisions for the future.

This is the first chance for you to hear about Redeye's plans for the next year and beyond. New board members will be voted in and you can meet other Redeye members as well as all staff and directors. So come along, have your say and catch up with old friends and new. Drinks and buffet will be provided. 

Photographic artist and Redeye member Natalie Wardle returns to host an evening with talented Northern photographers whose work looks at the human form in visual art and performance. Speaking alongside Natalie will be Lucy Ridges and Michael Savage.

The Photography Show returns to the NEC for its fifth year, between 17-20 March 2018. This year, Redeye will be hosting advice sessions on Monday 19 March.
