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!

Fourth Year is a series of informal support sessions for recent graduates and people about to graduate from photography courses to gain support for their practice.

Join Redeye for the first in a new series of lectures that will honour the great champion of British photography Pete James, who died in March 2018. A regular lecture in partnership with The Royal Photographic Society, PARC (Photography and the Archive Research Centre), and FORMAT International Photography Festival & QUAD.

Rut Blees Luxemburg's technique is to take photographs at night, mostly exploring the urban landscape. Rut employs long exposures to allow her to use the light emanating from the street only, for instance from office blocks or street lights in her photos. Many of her photographs and prints deal with nocturnal themes.

This November, international campaign movement With One Voice is holding the first ever International Arts and Homelessness Summit and Festival. The events are based on the acknowledgement that homelessness is not just about housing and practical ‘house-lessness’, and look to investigate how the arts are being used effectively around the world to reduce social isolation by building social networks and increasing both physical and mental health, improving public attitudes/promoting understanding towards people who are or have been homeless, and enabling homeless people to express themselves so their voice can be heard. 

The third in a new series of events to connect and support the photographic community in and around Sheffield. The sessions are presented by Redeye members Karina Lax and Jeremy Abrahams. This event features the work of Arpita Shah and the late Martin Jenkinson, and also includes time for discussion and networking.

During this event, Illuminate will introduce presentations from artists involved in their project and other guest speakers, investigating the lasting impact and legacy of Hull City of Culture 2017, specifically the impact it had on Hull and its cultural industries. The session will also provide Hull-based photographers with a platform to develop their network.

Hothouse arrives in Leeds for a day-long celebration of photographic talent. Throughout the day there will be short presentations from photographers about their recent work and projects, plus ample opportunity for networking and showing portfolios and books. Redeye is delighted to be working with Miniclick and Lens Think Yorkshire on this edition of Hothouse; they have both contributed to the day’s programming.

Chloe Dewe Mathews is an award-winning photographic artist. She is best known for ambitious documentary projects that can take years of preparation.
