About

In partnership with the Manchester School of Art Redeye presents In Conversation With Daniel Meadows on the 15th June. This will be a rare opportunity to hear Daniel speak about his career and work ahead of his exhibition Separate and Together – bringing June Street to Miles Platting opening on the 16th March.

Who is it for?

A day of talks, workshops and a panel discussion to celebrate the contemporary photobook hosted in partnership with Manchester School of Art.

There are a wealth of creative possibilities waiting for you once you have learnt how the camera works. 

*Please note whilst there are places available to attend Hothouse Bradford, applications to present are now closed. If you are interested in attending the event, please register at the bottom of the page.*

Hothouse returns to Bradford in March for an afternoon of presentations from the region’s most promising new creative talent, alongside a hub of photographic activity, delivered in association with Impressions Gallery.

Photographic artist and Redeye Member, Natalie Wardle returns to host an evening with Sade Mica and other talented northern photographers whose work looks at the human form in visual art and performance.

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.

In our experience, everyone is going about their business, talking about the success stories of their career to apply for new work. And so they should. But isn't it freeing to hear about the things that haven't quite gone to plan? Isn't it encouraging to know most people have experienced projects that go totally wrong? Yes!. This is a session to learn from each other's different situations to prevent future issues for yourself.

Redeye's Critique Surgeries are aimed at photographers or artists looking for advice and feedback on their work or practice. 

At this month's session, we welcome guest panellists Mario Popham, and Laura Deane in addition to Redeye Director Paul Herrmann.

Interested in large format film photography? Want to improve your ideas and technique? Come and hear from photographer Craig Easton, and if you like, bring along your work for group critique and feedback.

Craig Easton uses large format photography as part of Sixteen, a major new national touring project involving 16 photographers looking at the experience of 16-year-olds all around the UK. The project evolved from his earlier work The Scottish Referendum Project and aims to give a platform for young people from all walks of life to express their aspirations, hopes, dreams and fears for their futures.

Graduating can be a daunting prospect. Challenges can come thick and fast as you try to balance new work commitments with personal projects, moving home and losing the once-secure network of photographers and tutors you saw every day. Worried about what to do next? Then these sessions are for you!
