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.

Redeye's Photo Histories is a new strand of events that looks at some of the many histories that photography can uncover. The strand features photographers, archivists, scholars and historians exploring some of the lesser-known and under represented histories of photography.

Photo Ethics in Practice

23 March 2021, 19:00 to 20:30

Photography has a very complex relationship to ethics, and brings a unique set of challenges and considerations. In this event we will look at practical steps we can all take to interrogate our own working methods and ensure ethical best practice. Andrew will talk through his projects and how his own approach to ethics in photography has developed and evolved.

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.

Get informal advice on your projects and career during 1-1s with specialists in photography. Our regular Critique Surgeries are a supportive and welcoming space to share your work and get feedback and inspiration for continuting to improve your photographic work.

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.

Archiving Through Change

13 November 2020, 13:15 to 14:15

Originally envisaged as a physical exchange between UK and Hong Kong visual arts networks, Peer to Peer has responded to the Covid-19 pandemic to become an online space where meaningful exchange can happen and partnerships and relationships can be forged. This panel discusses the changing role of archives, comparing the approaches in Hong Kong and the UK, and considers what the archives and collections of the future might look like.
