Photographic artist and Redeye Member, Natalie Wardle returns to host an evening that includes presentations from other talented northern photographers Sade Mica and Lucie Crewdson whose work looks at the human form in visual art and performance. The event is part of a Redeye series where members suggest and host events based on their skills or interests.
About the speakers...
Natalie Wardle is a visual artist and photographer from Manchester. Her work looks at how women construct their bodies to fit in with society’s ideal body types, exploring shapewear and tape that is placed over nipples to both cover and repress their form.
The work of Sade Mica explores her experiences navigating the world as a queer, black person and the nuances that brings in fleshing out an identity that is often met with contempt and confusion.
Lucie Crewdson is a photographer living and working in Manchester. Lucie's photographic practise revolves around everyday experiences, the use of the body, elements of performance and sits within a fashion and fine art context.
Who is it for?
This event is for anyone interested in visual art or photography concerned with the human form, gender politics and identity.
Tuesday 14 May, 7-9pm. Doors open at 6.30pm.

Thanks for reading this far. Please consider making a donation at the time of registering, it helps to support our future programme of events. At the moment we have very limited funding that only covers the costs of a few member-led events each year. If everyone attending a member-led event donated £6, we could put on many more of these events.
