Join Redeye for a masterclass with the artist Edmund Clark as he explains his creative processes, approaches to photography and difficult subject matters prevalent in his most successful work.

The day workshop will begin with an introductory talk about Edmund's own work, including look at strategies for making work that depicts or represents the visually difficult or unseen and exploring the limits of photography when making work like this.

In the afternoon Edmund will lead a peer feedback session looking at the work that participants bring with them and covering more general questions for any aspiring professional photographer such as working with galleries and bookmaking. A creative brief will be circulated to pre-booked attendees wishing to make work for specific feedback.

About the artist

Edmund Clark is an artist interested in linking history, politics and representation. His research based work combines a range of references and forms including bookmaking, installations, photography, video, documents, text and found images and material; whatever is conceptually and formally relevant to investigating the subject and communicating with an audience. Recurring themes include developing strategies for reconfiguring how subjects are seen and engaging with state censorship to explore unseen experiences, spaces and processes of control and incarceration in the ‘Global War on Terror’ and elsewhere.

Who is it for?

This workshop is for photographers or artists who wish to look at their work in more detail, and gain valuable feedback on their approaches to image-making. The day is for artists at any level but we would suggest you already have an understanding of Edmund Clark's work and approaches to making work.

For this reason we are including free entry to the In conversation with Edmund Clark, Roxana Allison and Pablo Allison to everyone who books on to the masterclass. The in conversation event will take place the night before the masterclass on the 11th September. The location for this talk is the same as the daylong masterclass, the International Anthony Burgess Foundation on Cambridge Street.
