The EYE returns for another jam-packed weekend of talks, films, portfolio reviews and exhibitions – plus the opportunity to network and socialise with the internationally renowned guest speakers.
The 2014 festival sees another high quality line-up of guest artists, including one of the world’s leading documentary photographers, Ian Berry, who was invited to join Magnum by Henri Cartier Bresson. He is joined by landscape photographer Charlie Waite, Royal photographer Arthur Edwards MBE, award winning Justin Mazon (USA), Angele Etoundi Essamba (Cameroon/France), award winning Timothy Allen, Sophie Batterbury (picture editor of The Independent), Eamonn McCabe (former Picture Editor for The Guardian), Colin Jacobson (photojournalism lecturer), documentary photographers Kajal Nisha Patel and World Press Award winner Laura Pannack, whilst the event will be opened by Magnum member and one of the UK’s leading reportage photographers, David Hurn.
In addition to the guest lectures, there are also a number of prestigious photography exhibitions on display during the festival. In Gallery 1 there are plans to showcase Olivia Arthur’s Jeddah Diary exhibition, in association with Magnum. A special tribute to Ron Davies OBE will see a selection of his work on display – the photography world lost a great friend when Ron passed away in 2013 and we are pleased and grateful to Ron’s family for allowing us to show some of his work. Also within the Arts Centre ‘the Box’, a mini viewing room will be showing a special linked programme of work over the weekend of the festival in conjunction with the original trustees of Third Floor Gallery: Joni Karanka, Maciej Dakowicz and Bartosz Nowicki. Keith Morris’ working project ‘The Black and White Dress’ will also be in action during the festival weekend. You can find out all about these exhibitions and our guest artists on the Eye’s website www.theeyefestival.co.uk
