In partnership with MMU, Redeye presents a series of photographic talks from some of the UK's leading photographic artists. On the 25 January 2017, Susan Derges joins us in Manchester to talk about her working using cameraless photographic processes.
'Extraordinarily beautiful, mesmeric pictures which confirm that Derges is one of the most skilful and imaginative photographers working in Britain today.' - The Independent
Susan Derges began her career as a painter working in London and Berlin in the 1970s and moved to Japan in 1980 where she developed the cameraless approach to photography for which she has become internationally renowned.
Cycles of life, death, and change, and their relationship to physical experience are explored through visual metaphors that borrow from science, nature, psychology and art.
She has recently been working on a series titled Tide Pools, which has been developed with assistance from the department of Marine biology University of Plymouth and is visiting professor of photography at the University of Plymouth.
